So, I received the Block Party Amber beer kit with a purchase of mine and Amber is a bit dull, so I made some additions to it and plan on adding some chocolate/chili flavors. In the process, my OG turned out to be 29.4 brix (1.1263). The airlock stopped bubbling after about two days, which I didn’t think anything of because it could just be the seal on the lid that is allowing gas to escape or something like that.
BUT THEN. I found mrmalty.com… basically its a calculator for how much yeast should be used depending on the OG. The Amber kit came with one 6gram package, but apparently I should have used about 3.8 packages for this beer. Does anyone have experience with this and know how accurate that calculator is? If so, I need more yeast pronto.
