    Manually though, right? Unless a spunding valve has been fitted. 150g of sugar is a fair bit for 19l so I think you will need to vent some CO2 at some point.

    1.023 is high unless it's a 10% DIPA or an uncorrected refractometer reading.

    I think they're rated to 100psi or something like that, maybe more. Just pull on the pressure release valve every few days if you're concerned.

    Good point, mine have all had s30 valves added onto them so I can take them away and still dispense beer ok. They will release when there is too much pressure. (I blame the two dopplebocks & whisky for my reply..)

    Tried releasing the pressure and hardly any pressure had built up.

    150g is 2.9 vols of co2 - not that bad. As long as you've got the line balanced enough it should be fine. That 1023 is a bit concerning, though.

    Well, yes, the yeast will drop eventually, but before it does it has to stop actually fermenting. Sounds to me like your ferment stopped very early and long before completion.

    Until you tell us what you actually brewed, it is all a bit abstract, this "advice".

    Your questions sound more like a plea for false assurance than for information.

    First comment on Amazon about this kit: "Delicious beverage. Kit did not fully ferment" Yowza.

    Kit specs say 1.044 -> 1.008 so that's really far off the mark for a finishing gravity. These things happen, man. You'll probably do the next 20 brews without problems. I had a spate of stalls at 1.020 when I was using s-04 and it was really disheartening but now it's something I only remember when something like this happens.

    And if a beer turns out really bad try making shandy with it. Seriously.
