ok, I made a Belgian blonde ale, I have made this before and it came out wonderfully. I got the recipe from Brewer's friend.
I brewed 7 days ago, the SG was 1.063, which was right on the recipe.
The SG is now 1.012
The recipe calls for FG to be at 1.017
So: the facts.. I used Safale T-58 with a starter for the 5 gal extract batch
It was a bit warm this week, but maybe low 70's
I used a wine thief to get the samples from the carboy.
Even when I temperature correct the SG it gets to 1.014
Testes fine, smells fine.
So how can my batch be lower SG only after only 7 days?
So: My initial thought is that .. don't worry about it, have it sit for another week, then keg, you can wait, it will beer.
However this was double-batch brew day, so I could have screwed something up. I am open to other suggestions.
