I have a stout that finished with a higher final gravity than I expected.



Mashed grains at 155 deg. O.G. 1.063 I pitched a very active starter, and had visible fermentation within 3 hours. The next morning, the fermentation was furious, and my fermometer read 75 deg. Concerned that the temp was too high, I draped some wet towels over the carboy. The next day the temp was 64 degreres, and the yeast looked pretty sluggish. After the 3rd day, all activity stopped, I racked to secondary with a gravity of 1.017.
