I have two batches currently in fermentation, a porter and an Imperial IPA. Both were brewed on 10-21-11 so they have been fermenting for about 9 days.
Neither batch has dropped to a gravity I was expecting. The porter began at 1.076 and is now at 1.030. I had great activity, but now all has seemed to stop. My fear is that it will be too sweet as I was hoping to finish around 1.020. I pitched two packets of wyeast london ale when it was at 69 degrees. It is in the basement and with cooler temperatures at night the wort may fluctuate 3-4 degrees.
This essentially the same with the imperial ipa, although it has progressed better than the porter. It started at 1.078 and it is now at 1.024. with this batch I pitched 2 packets of Wyeast Denny's Favorite 50
