comment Stuck or Slow Fermentation
Ok, I now see that the ABV indications are just an easier way of determining the ABV without doing the math. You just subtract the first reading from the final and get your ABV.

comment Stuck or Slow Fermentation
Like I said, I didn't take a reading until today day 8 because I had been sold a floating thermometer instead of a hydrometer and didn't realize it until after I brewed. I have a floating hydrometer from True Brew. It has readings for ABV, gravity readings, and percent sugar. Those were the readings I took originally. I am about to take a new reading at 60 F.

PJ, a separate question outside of this post, or as an answer to my question? Not sure what you mean.

comment Pellet Hops spilled out of bag in secondary. Advice?
I ended up filtering through a strainer into another bucket. I had hops floating, at the bottom, and in suspension; so it seemed to risky bottling through that. The extra step resulted in a nice clear beer.

I've read about creating centrifugal force by stirring the beer and all the hops would be drawn to the center, allowing racking to be done from closer to the edge of the bucket. Any truth to that?
