Default Is this normal?

Took a peak at the wheat beer I did last weekend.... primary has just about finished and the cryzon has dissipated leaving this.

Is this that infection I hear people speak of? Or am I just being stupid?

Nice! Other than missing OG by about a country mile, forgetting the bitter orange peel AND the the corriander seeds.... Maybe, it'll be an okay beer. But it's likely to come in at around 4% and probably be pretty bland.

Looks good. Personally leaving out the coriander is a good thing. I find it overpowers the beer. You could always boil some orange for 5mins, let it col and strain. Buy some spray malt so if you are below target in future you can top it up.

So.. I've just checked it on the refractometer. It's sitting at 1017.. which seems pretty high. Do you think it's stuck?

I missed OG by a country mile, and started at 1039 (was meant to be 1046). So if it's done all it can, it's good for the drain. You think I should give it a mix up and see if the yeast will kick back off?

It's only been in the primary since Monday. But there's no more activity.

Its only been in the FV for four days ffs! How do you know its finished? Why are you thinking of dumping it so early on .
My advice is keep the lid on and forget all about it for two weeks and then take a reading and decide what to do with it.
