I would follow the advice that has been given here.

Your handle was a new German word for me. After finding what it translates to, all I can say is -RDWHAHB! That is the brewing outlook you need.

Hahaha, RDWHAHB is a great philosophy, I just thought "Der Wütend Bierbrauer" would be a good screen name here because I find it funny.  Alright well I'll give it a stir and see what happens!  Thanks guys.

Well when I brewed this batch of beer I relied on a friend of mine to teach me, who said he knew what he was doing, but he didn't.  Haha.  The OG wasn't measured, by the time we pitched the yeast the wort had cooled down below the temperature at which the yeast was supposed to be pitched.  The wort was even burned on the bottom.  (not my doing) Right now I'm back on the Oregon Coast and there isn't a good homebrew supply store, so all I have available to purchase for more yeast is Ale Yeast, not British Ale Yeast.  I think it's safe to say that this batch is f**ked.  Oh well, I tried.

Right on, thanks for the help!  If I were to pitch more yeast, how many more vials?  I've only put one vial in.

Thank you!  I pitched British Ale Yeast.

Hello everybody, I'm a new homebrewer.  I have a quick question that I hope somebody will help me with.

I brewed a batch of beer on Nov. 4th, and it still hasn't bubbled and foamed up out of the top of the carboy.  I just realized today that the brew is supposed to ferment around 68 degrees, and the average temperature where it's been fermenting is around 50 degrees or so.  Is this batch ruined?  If I move it to a warmer temperature will it still foam up, or is it too late?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
