2. The environment is cooler than you think -- it's not on a stone floor is it? -- and/or the temperature is fluctuating in such a way that it's affecting the ferment.
Not on a stone floor, but near the floor on a case of empties in the basement storage room. Last weeks heat wave (into the low 90's) raised the brews temp (measured via a stick-on strip thermometer) to 76 or so (NOT 80 or 82) for a day or two. Most of the time it's been around 68, not 76.

Sorry about that!
