Its done mate, throw it in some bottles (or kegs if your that way inclined...)ha ha. so any thoughts on this. i put it down 2 sundays ago. been sitting on 18-22 degrees. it's just a aussie lager from the brew shop, with 1/2kg of dextrous. checked hydro over the weekend, was sitting on 1.009.
Spend a bit more time on here and doing some reading/research and you will find a plethora of information that will help you.If it's still bubbling , and its finished , it may just be CO2 being pushed out your airlock , from your newly fermented beer !cheers nath. i'll go out and check hydro again now, if it's steady i'll bang it into some bottles tonight. i always thought, if it's bubbling it's still going. should go off hydro's more...
Once you've hit FG leave it for 3 days and check again, if hasn't dropped further then you're good to bottle. If it's dropped further then leave it a few more days and check again. I always make sure I have a consistent FG reading for at least 3 days straight just to be sure, better safe than sorry. I've never had a bottle bomb doing it this way.ha ha. so any thoughts on this. i put it down 2 sundays ago. been sitting on 18-22 degrees. it's just a aussie lager from the brew shop, with 1/2kg of dextrous. checked hydro over the weekend, was sitting on 1.009.
I know racking into a glass carboy isn't that popular in Australia as it is in the states. It gives you the opportunity to see the fermentation going on. I have had beers finish at .998checked hydro again, same 1009. bottled it last night. cheers guys, will do a bit more reading on here, it's a great forum.
Bubbles can just be the disolved CO2 comming out of the beer due to temperature changes, or even just due to atmospheric pressure changes (a pressure drop will result in a higher pressure inside than out - so gasses move out through the airlock to equalise.but if it is still making bubbles, something is still alive.
