I am trying to brew my first Dry Stout and think I may have not done something correctly. Granted this is only my fourth brew, but the others turned out fine.
In anycase, this was the first time I used a dry yeast for the brew. I thought I activated it properly, brought 4oz of water to 95*F then let it cool down before adding the yeast, then stirred it to a even consistency before pitching it into the wort. I let it sit in the primary fermentor for about 3 days and when I did my gravity reading, it hadn't changed from when I first put it in there. Could I have prepped the yeast improperly and is there a way to save the brew? Is it a bad idea to add another batch of yeast to the brew this late in the stage? I just moved it to the secondary fermentor to see if it might reactivate the yeast and help the fermentation along.
Sure hope I didn't botch this one up.
