No patience Dave. Racked already to secondary. Can I add more yeast or forget it and drink it?  Looks like a little over 4% abv

This is my 2nd brew ever and I can't get hydrometer reading below 1.02. I transferred to secondary tonight.  Can I add new yeast to brew?  Also can u add water to bring up to 5 gal level?  I didn't stir layer of stuff on bottom of bucket which I understand my reactivate yeast. It tasted ok but supposed to be 1.01 to 1.015

I plugged in the heat belt I have and air lock started to bubble once every couple minutes
Temp on bucket now says 70 deg. I assume that means fermentation has begun again?
Another ? - bottled my 1st batch Sunday. How warm do bottles need to be to carbonate?

Thansk for your time -
Bought yeast at local brewery store.  Got recipe off internet and bought locally
Not sure how to rehydrate or to calibrate hydrometer

Help - fermentation at day 9 seems to have stopped.  Took 2 readings in 2 days and stuck at 1.02.
Beggining was 1.052.  Should I rack to secondary, stir, leave alone???  Some small bubbles on top but everything seems to have certainly settled down.  Ending gravity supposed to be 1.01-1.012
