Yeah, I try to be really careful when it comes to sanitation. I think
that has paid off over the years.

Tried that. The only thing that got it going a little bit was vigorous
shaking of the secondary fermenter (a glorified office cooler water
bottle). Even that only aroused very tepid airlock activity.

Interesting, thanks. I'll have to see what yeast energizer is. What
really concerned me was that the pitching of a fresh packet of US-05 did
absolutely nothing. Right now this fermenter just sits there with the
airlock showing a very slight and constant pressure. In a week I'll dip
a straw in there and sample a little for a taste test. If ok I'll let it
sit for another couple of months. If it's sour or funky I'll dump it
because it will likely have become unfermentable.
Luckily the Belgian Quadrupel which I fermented about three months ago
with the same BE-256 yeast strain came out great as usual. I bottled
that on Monday, along with an IPA.
Thanks. Though I haven't had much luck with groups.io
. The access is
cumbersome. Usenet is so much easier.
Most of my ham radio groups are on the 30, 40 and 80 meter CW sections :-)
