Well it’s been sitting in the secondary for a week and still some bubbles in the airlock. This has been a learning process to say the least with a very active yeast and trying to control the temps using a water bath. And a broken hydrometer on top of that.
I purchased a new hydrometer so I’m going to go by the recipe OG and today’s reading of 1.012. All other SG readings I’m tossing. The taste and smell are good (bud-like perfect for my wife). The color is a nice gold color and it has cleared very nicely in the carboy.
Plan forward is to leave it alone and check the gravity on Saturday. The recipe calls for a FG=1.010. I’m planning to bottle this batch on Saturday if she’s ready.
The lesson here is leave it alone. Let it do it’s work and count on your eyes, nose, taste and SG readings. Also learned how to control temps with water bath/evap. I’ve learned about kveik yeasts, etc. All in all it’s been a great learning experience.
Now I’m looking into a BIAB w/kveik yeast for my next batch.
