I just brewed an oatmeal stout see recipe details here and I have a question about missing Orignal and/or Final gravities.
The OG was supposed to be 1.061 and the FG 1.016. I brewed and got an OG or 1.063 and I racked to my carboy last night and the specific gravity was 1.022. I'm concerned that the gravity wont drop any more while in the carboy, will it? Is there anything I can do to get it to further come down to the expected range (1.016 -1.018 - corrected for my overage on the OG)?
Should I be adding a yeast nutrient or energizer to the carboy in hopes of getting the yeast going again? If so what do you recommend?
Or should I consider re-pitching with more yeast, my fear here is that I only want it to drop a tiny bit as I'm not too far off.
Or should I just leave it alone and let it be for 2-3 weeks in the carboy and not overthink it?
Here are some notes about the brewing and transfer of the batch on my notebook.
Thanks, ~ Tom
