Chuck Coronella asked about fermentation that stopped
prematurely. I've had my share of these and usually its the temperature
of the brew that causes the problem. Take a sample and take its
temperature. If its in the low range for your yeast, try moving
the brew to a warmer place in the house. I live in a two story, so
I can get 5 degrees F difference just by carring the whole
mess up a flight of stairs. I've tried adding yeast nutrient as well
but if the temperature is wrong it will do no good.
