Day 12...I've just sterilised the hop bag and weight spoons and weighed out the hops for dry hopping. All visible signs of fermentation gone,no bubbles or lid pressure, however on opening the lid the krausen is still there...I gave it a nudge and it collapsed and dissipated, the beer seems quite clear and no off smells. Took a fg at 1010, this gives me 4.6% or so. A closer look at the fg sample before drinking (seems ok) I can see a steady stream of micro bubbles rising in the tube..so I wonder if it has finished..I'll hop it anyway and test again in 4/5 days.

Cheers

Hiya G
Did you brew to 23l? Funny how SG varies as does fg...wonder if it's dodgy fv markings for volume, water quality or pitching temps and yeast attenuation?

Cheers

Hmmmm. ..suppose 4.6 is OK and it might do down a bit further. It does seem like a long ferment..could be the 05 yeast..

Cheers
