THis brew has got “stuck” the SG reached 1020 and stopped dead.

I think it’s the combination of temperature and not enough yeast, kits only come with around 5g of it and really you need 11g for a decent brew.
The temp fell to 18 a couple of days ago and that’s when the brew stopped, I have stirred it, that didn’t help, I got the heating belt out and brought the temp uop to 22c and that hasn’t stared it either.

I do have both Nottingham and Safale US05 yeasts on order and they should be here in the next few days and I will try to restart the brew with one of those, if that fails then I’ll just chuck it and start another.
