I recently found a few bottles of this that were over a year old and they tasted great!

I also found a few bottles of Geordie Export, also over a year old, which when I made it I pitched onto the yeast cake of my first all grain brew. It was lager yeast, Saflager-S23. Probably the best kit beer I've made.

Three, mate:

Leave it
Leave it
Measure it.

I ended up having to open all 12x 500ml of last year's Xmas Ale into a small 15L FV and rebottle the bloody lot, fighting my way through more foam than a car wash.

It ain't going anywhere at that strength, so let it ferment down in its own time. If it is annoying you, get some demijohns and store it under glass for a few months.

Hope this helps, mate!

Thanks! I'm just going to stick it in a cupboard and forget about it for a bit. Currently it is prominently placed, and near a calendar....so I know it's coming to 3 weeks and I've tested twice with no movement. Hiding it, and sticking on another brew, will take my mind off it.

Cheers, pal!

Put it somewhere warm. 1 wk. Nothing.

2 wks - bubbles and scum.

Tonight - nice and clean 1.012, so I bottled it.

Kept a jar of trub in the fridge.

1.012 should be a good place to bottle a big beer.

Keeping some yeast is also good. I can't understand why more HB's don't do this simple procedure.
