I just checked my ferment, it's at 15 brix.
This one got cold and I wasn't able to warm it back up until a few days ago when I got my Ink Bird controller.
It's been at 75F for a couple days but apparently isn't doing anything.
I used the last of my yeast brick too.
Now I'm increasing the heat and I'll get more yeast and pitch it asap.
Is 45F cold enough to kill a rum ferment with bakers yeast?

The hefe wash is almost ready to run 1 month later

Challenge accepted, going to get a starter going now to wake them yeast up!
