    Hi i dry hopped yesterday and left the cup and stc-1000 probe outside in the heat. This has resulted in my beer being frozen. Can i just thaw out and add more yeast? It has been fermenting for just under a week

    What’s the SG ? Cleanest beer I ever made in the bucket of death was frozen (not solid - only the top 8 “).

    It should be fine. Happened to me a few years ago - froze an entire batch of lager solid. Let it thaw and the yeast survived and the bottles carbed up just fine (took a bit longer than normal).
