I’m very new to brewing, this is my second batch. I used 1098 in a St. Paul’s Porter extract kit. I brewed on Sunday, and noticed last night that fermentation is slowing already, and the krausen already settled.
The carboy is in my cellar, and I’m in Maine, so I’m worried it slowed down due to low temp.
So my question is, is this unusual to slow so quickly, and would it be ok, to bring it upstairs, warm it up a bit and see if things speed back up.
If I warm it, should I stir or agitate the beer to get the yeast going again? There’s plenty of head room, I’m using a 6 gallon glass carboy for primary.
Thanks very much for any help!
