Interesting- how long will they last and would I need to do anything to them before I use them?
If you had a slow start that eventually started, it is now probably too late to pitch more yeast. But, since you've got it, have at 'er. No telling what you might end up with now. Might be great, might not. About 50/50 odds, I would say.
So I went with the do nothing approach and let it go- gave it an extra week to ferment to make up for the week that it took to get started. And...it finished! SG on 9/5/15 was 1.014, nice and clear, and no discernible off flavors- in fact, it tastes pretty good!I'd like to bottle it so I can give some to friends- anything different about bottling a lager?
