Im moving soon and was hoping to have all my beers kegged or bottled before moving because they just will be easier to move that way vs full buckets or carboys.
I have a full 5gal carboy of belgian red fermented with roselare blend. its been around 10 months since i brewed the beer originally. it stayed in the first carboy for two months then i transfered to a second carboy with an oak stick and added another pack of roselare blend. it has been kept at around 70 deg for the last 8 months. it is beautifully clear had a nice filmy pellicule on top for a while. the flavor is slightly tart and a little funky. all is well but i was thinking it could be a bit more sour. and the fg is still around 1.019 so the bugs should still have some more food.
i want to bottle it for east of transport. but if the beer wont achieve its potential or if i risk bottle bombs because of the high fg then i will leave it in the carboy a while. and consider adding bottle dregs or more roselare blend.
basically i am wondering if it will continue to develop if i bottle it. and if i risk overcarbonation or bottle bombs if i dont let the bugs chew down the gravity some before bottling.
