Denny’s extract kit
Brew day went as normal. Actually about as good as they tend to go for me. Came in a little high at 1.084. Pitched a very healthy starter after aeration.
~25days go by (yes should’ve checked in sooner) take a reading about ready to go to 2ndary - 1.04
I rouse the yeast, put it in the warmest part of the house. a few days go by no change.
Go to the local homebrew shop, they give me wine yeast. Whatever. I just don’t want to flush a kit at this point. ~3days go by, maybe it’s down to 1.036, but I think i’m looking at the glass half full.
I just transferred because I don’t know what to do, but it tastes like garbage. I’ve had under-fermented sweet beers before, but this just about made me gag.
I’m basically resigned to the fact that I’m probably dumping this in a couple months, but I’d like to know where I could’ve gone wrong to bung this up so badly. Thoughts?
