I brewed NB's Dry Irish Stout extract using S04 for the first time. Fermentation began at 61°F 6 hours after pitching. Evening of the second day krausen was bubbling through the air lock at 62°. Following morning no krausen through air lock at 63°. Evening of the third day the beer temperature dropped 2°. I began to slowly raise the temperature to 68°. Held temperature at 68° to today.
The beer has been in the fermentor now for 23 days. On day 13 the SG was 1.014. SG is holding at 1.014. No CO2 present in the sample. Taste of the SG sample is good. Very full body. Should I have a lower SG with this yeast based on your experiences with it? OG was 1.042.
Previously used WY 1084 for this beer. This yeast would finish the same recipe at 1.008 to 1.009.
