So I've taken a hydrometer reading today just to check how it's doing and I'm a little confused! Hoping somebody can help shed some light on my findings (excuse the quality of pic)....

I'm leaving it for another week before even entertaining introducing it to bottles.

That's 1.006 in my eyes and done.How long has it been in the fermenter and what was your original gravity?

OG would help but 1.006 is a dry beer. Still leave it in the fermentor for at least another week. The yeast will have no food to eat so they'll start absorbing their own biproducts. These give off flavors you don't want.

Hope she likes drinking your creations! My first wife did not, so boring her to death was doubly bad. Her replacement loves beer, and humors me WRT my constant obsessive conversations about brewing. Every once in a while she'll even say something that proves she actually listens!

Thanks for the answers guys, I took a couple more readings late last week and they were the same so after 2 weeks of being like a kid on Christmas Day I bottled yesterday afternoon.

It took me 4 hours in the bathroom which beats my previous record of being in there. Managed to get 41 pints out of it and I'm really happy with how it's come out so far. Managed to test a little bit and it smells and tastes nice although I'm sure it'll be better in another couple of weeks.

Thinking I'll do some wine next!

Be careful with those clear bottles. Now that the beer is conditioning any sunlight will skunk the beer.

Hi Dan, and welcome. I love see all my beer lined up like you have there. This is my dinning room and the beer that is currently conditioning there. Behind those crates are two fermenters with two more beers getting ready to replace these one in a few weeks time.
