I made a lager 2 weeks ago and pitched in accordance with Mr. Malty. I aerated with O2 for 90 seconds and fermentation took off. I used Wyeast 2278 for a clean Czech Pils.
Well a week later it stalled at 1.030. So I decided to raise the temp and brought it up a few degrees a day to 68. I have another lager in there so I figured it would not hurt it and I could perform a diacetyl rest on that while the former burned out.
Well another week later and I'm only down to 1.020. It should get to at least 1.015.
RDWHAHB and just wait it out? It sure seems to be taking a long time. 2 weeks to only 1.020....
Edit: And I'm a little worried about the other lager being at 68 for 2 weeks. Again, RDWHAHB? The newer one is REALLY tasty though already! YAY!
