Fermenting stops after only a few days

What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

attenuation

Postby slothrob » Wed May 14, 2008 2:22 pm

To understand where the %attenuation number comes from:

(OG-FG) ÷ OG = attenuation (ignore the 1 of the 1.0xx)

or, (47 - 16) ÷ 47 = 0.66 or 66%.

In other words, it's the percentage change in gravity due to fermentation.

By the way, I often have rapid fermentations of a few days or so, but I generally give the yeast another week or more or so to clean up some of the fermentation byproducts and give me a final beer with fewer off-flavors. A couple additional days are probably sufficient, but you also want about 3 days at a consistent gravity to avoid bottle bombs. I've consistently had problems of one sort or another with beers I've rushed out of primary.

Relax and drink a brew man. You're like a nervous cat! :lol:

Your beer's gonna be just fine. Leave it in the fermenter for awhile. The yeast is still doing it's thing. I've been leaving mine in the fermenter for 3 weeks before I transfer to a bottling bucket. I don't use a secondary and that extra time on the yeast cake really gets rid of any off flavors faster than in the bottle and it comes out clear as a bell.

If you want higher ABV% you gotta get you OG up higher than 1.047. Chances are, your FG is going to drop more. .016 seems a little high or you've made a pretty sweet beer. But even still as it is, your ABV% is probably going to be in the mid 4.0 range depending on where you FG stops at.

[quote="jimcraig"off the top of my head it was 3# of grain and 2.25# DME, pitched London 1028 Wyest.[/quote]

3# grain and 2.25# DME isn't going to make a high ABV%. Just adjust your recipe next time if you want more than that.

Are you using a brewing calculator or are you just throwing stuff together? Your calculator will tell you approximately what your OG,FG, ABV% is and so on.

I figured you were just bustin balls, its all good. I got thick skin and am extremely difficult to offend.

here is a link to Brains Brewing website. Its supposed to be the oldest brewery in Wales. Its known as a session beer, the beer I brewed. A traditional Welsh Ale.

got done with my "monster IPA" I ended up adding 3/4oz of Columbus at the end with the Amarillo. The color is a nice caramel color and OG came in at .057. pitched the CA Ale yeast at 69deg.

I checked out that website. Where have you had that beer before?
I'd be interested in trying some of that.

Did you formulate your clone recipe, or get it from somewhere?
