Q: My brew has been sitting for over a week. I tested the pH per the directions and the reading was too high. What do I need to do to get the pH to the recommended 2.5 to 3.5?

A: The slow growth/fermentation could be due to a low temperature. If you are brewing at the lower end of the average (70/72 degrees), let it brew for another 5-7 days and then give it another taste test and pH strip test and see how everything looks! Brewing at a lower temperature will work fine,  it just might take a little longer.
