Yes, it's the political climate. I've said for years it's the
Republicans what don' let my brew ferment out.

I'd suspect the temperature. This happened to me also using Edme and
Wyeast's Irish ale yeast just after winter came to central Oregon a few
weeks ago.

Try moving the brew to a more warm location. It worked for me.
