2nd batch ever. A made up recipe with leftover ingredients.
8 # Pilsen LME
1 # Carapils
1# Crystal 20
60 min Magnum 1oz
5 min Centennial .5oz
5 min Citra 1oz
Dry hop .5 Centennial and 1oz Citra
2 x 05 dry yeast
So I brewed this batch more than two weeks ago. I kinda over pitched the yeast by using 2 packs on a 1.060 beer. The fermentation took off like crazy within 12 hours but only seemed to last a couple days. 4 days after pitching the airlock went silent.
8 days of sitting in the primary and said wtf and threw my dry hops right into the primary. It’s been 7 or 8 days since I dry hopped and I took a reading last night. Sadly I didn’t take a reading before dry hopping but last nights reading (2+weeks after brew day) and it’s sitting at 1.020
I’m thinking about racking it to secondary to see if I can kickstart a little fermentation back up. Seems like when I racked to secondary with my first batch the airlock activity picked back up for another day or two.
My question is: Is it worth it to rack to secondary or should I let it sit on the cake longer? Is there something else I should do to get a little lower FG? A little honey in water perhaps? Could a poorly oxygenated wort have caused this? OR is it just hard to get low gravity beers with extract brewing?
Thanks in advance for any help.
