General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Fruit flies in airlock

That happened to me when I fermented at my friends house. Luckily, the beer turned out great. I think it has something to do with humidity. If not, it must be something to do with living in a remote area because my buddy lives out in the country where theres lots of wildlife and vegetable matter everywhere

a cheap good fix would be adding a pack of safale 05 at a higher temp, not too high

Your yeast was in the low 60's for 2.5 weeks? raising it to about 68 degrees would allow the yeast to be more active, therefore, lowering your attenuation. But it has been a while since you pitched. If that were my situation I would pitch a new starter. A fewer amount of yeast cells though
