As I having my morning brew (I mean tea, of course) I began thinking about what would be the most troubling scenario for a budding brewer. One of the most anxious periods in the brewing process for most people has to be the fermentation stage.\n\n\n\nSo, why isn't your homemade beer fermenting and how can you fix it? \n\n\n\nA non-fermenting beer is connected to your wort, its sugar content, and the viability of your yeast. Either it's too old or doesn't have enough sugary nutrients to feed on. Higher and lower ambient temperatures can be a cause as can a lack of oxygen. All are necessary for yeast to ferment beer.\n\n\n\nLuckily, if you can identify the problem early enough there are some fairly straightforward fixes to a non-fermenting wort. I will go into more detail about each of them in this article.\n\n\n\n I will also explore what to do when fermentation started but suddenly put the brakes on, known as "stuck fermentation". So if you are looking for a solution stick around!\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Plan your next Beer Creation?
