  1. I brewed a grand bohemian Czech pilsner that was about 7 months past the best by date. I also added a pale LME and used T-58 yeast that was a little old. My OG was 1.044 and after ~3-4 days fermenting my gravity was 1.020. I measured it because of lack of krausen. After 1 week fermenting the gravity really hadn't moved (1.019)I was worried. At that time I racked to secondary and added lemon juice and lemon zest and ~ half pack of regular MB yeast. Now at 2 weeks fermentation I'm still at about the same gravity (1.016 now). Is this due to the old products? The beer tastes pretty good but it's only going to be about 3.5%. I don't mind that, but if I bottle these and they explode my girlfriend will kill me. Any thoughts or input? Am I safe to bottle? Thanks in advance!
