This is a first for me. hopefully, someone has seen this before. My Oktoberfest extract kit has been
lagering for the last 5 weeks. I checked it today ( it was transferred into a corney keg just b4 lagering). There was a ton of gas when I released the pin. Also, there’s a lot of foam.
It tastes excellent.
I carefully siphoned the beer out of the corney and into a plastic bucket. When I placed the lid with bubbler on it, it started bubbling like crazy !
Although I didn’t record the FG, it was within expectation and bubbling had completely stopped when I transferred it to corney and placed in lagering fridge.
Ferment temps were on the low side, but within range and lagering temps were in the mid 30’s.
There’s no sign of infection and , like I said, it tastes wonderful, even at its uncarbed stage. I should also say that I did a D-Rest for 2 days prior to lagering.
Is it that this hadn’t completed fermetation ? Would it taste this good if that was the case ?
For now, I’m going to let it sit at room temp to see what happens over the next day or 2, but I’m open to suggestions.
