Is say its been too cold for the little critters for the last week or so in Auckland. A aquarium heater should get things moving.
And some metallica. :music-deathmetal: :laughing-rolling:

Very common for home brewers to be out shaking the fermenters if the wash stalls. Careful tho - if it isn't ph and all the yeast needs is a nudge you might end up with foaming wash everywhere if the fermenter is too full.

Haha, I can just see it... Woohoo, its ALIVE! Oh shit, shit, shhhiiiiiitttttt! Righto, where's that bloody mop. :crying-blue:

Yeah I think most of us have been there. Grrrrr - waste of perfectly good booze too!
