Although I’m an AG brewer, I’d gotten a free extract Phat Tyre kit… so I thought I’d give it a try. I steeped the grains @165F for 20 mins and had the following grain bill:
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
8.0 oz Victory Malt
1 lbs DME Pilsen
6 lbs Munich LME
The OG was 1.055, and I pitched a fresh pack of S-05 and fermented it at 62F… It’s been about 3.5 weeks, and it’s stuck at 1.018. That seems pretty high to me.
Is that how extract batches roll these days? I haven’t brewed one in a VERY long time…
Any ideas as to how I can get the gravity down?
Thanks in advance!
