It'll probably go a good long time now. The only thing to do is wait it out. It should ferment out pretty thoroughly.

Does BEANO help stuck fermentation? Never knew that.

Beano breaks down complex sugars into simple sugars. All of the sugars the yeast leave behind can be eaten once Beano has been added. It is a great way to produce low carb beers, but the trade off is not much body, and a dry beer.

Putting it in the fridge is just going to stall fermentation, not stop it. Bottle Bombs. Heating to pasteurize would work if you can force carb., but might drive off some flavors. Wine makers use preservatives to stop fermentation...

My advice. Only use Beano to prevent farts.

Beano'd beer will ferment for an eternity. Even weeks in a secondary...you'll still end up with over-carbonated bottles of beer. That sh!t never stops fermenting.

Toss in some potassium sorbate (local LHBS). That will render the yeast impotent and fermentation should stop.

Beano in beer= bad beer. It would take some serious experimentation to figure out how to use it effectively.

Beano is similar (but not exactly the same) as alpha amylase. It breaks down complex starches into simpler sugars. You mash out and boil your wort which denatures the mash enzymes. The only way to stop beano really is to heat the beer to 170F, or kill the yeast.
