    Hi there, I was brewing with brew Smith one Australian wattle pale ale, and I followed precisely the instruction and the video tutorial.
    Everything seemed fine but when I went today to place the airlock instead than the tube, I noticed that it looks very dark and flat compared the the one in the video.
    Also it hadn’t been babbling much, and don’t seem to be fermented,
    Not sure what to do, so
    should i just keep brewing it and check the final result or do you have any tips for it?

      Hi Filippo,
      Sounds like you got some dud yeast (or the wort was too hot when you added the yeast, potentially) – the quickest way to get it started is to grab a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or IPA and keep the yeast from the bottom of the bottle (and add). A Cooper’s will work too, just don’t shake it up; pour off the top of the beer and leave a few cm in the bottom. Swirl and add the yeasty slurry into your beer. Should get started quickly then!
      Also, sanitize your hands and give it a good second aeration.
      Let us know how it goes!

      Hi Jay, the beers taste best if used within a few months as hops lose their flavour naturally. But the beer itself will last as long as commercial beer. The hops, alcohol and yeast help preserve it!

        Ok great. I have only been fermenting the beer for a total of 4 days. The first 2 days it was bubbling alot, but when I put the airlock in 2 days later it was not bubbling a great deal, say eevery 30 seconds and 4 days now it is bubbling not much at all. In the instructions it mentions your beer will be ready to bottle after about 2 weeks if warm. So it has been a total of 4 days and hardly bubbling say every 1-2 minutes max even longer. Should I bottle the beer now or after 10 days? This is my first batch and just want to be sure, thanks.
