wheat yeast always seems to be a long, active ferment. at least all the one's i've brewed have been that way. a friend of mine has a belgian triple going (his first big beer) and he's freak'n out because it wasn't finished in 3-4 days like all his other ales.
just let the beer work, keep it cool and dark, and she'll be just fine....

i had that happen with the third round of the chico ale yeast...

it was fine, after two weeks of a full head, i opened the airlock and she sank. might be surface tension is really strong in there.

He's going to be freaking out for a while, then! I just racked mine over. It was in primary for 2-3 weeks, and only got down to 1.025.

Well, I finally bottled this Belgium Wit last night. It took 7 days in the primary and 27 more in the secondary. OG 1.050, FG 1.005

Took a taste before bottling and I think the jury is out on how it'll be. Can't describe but tastes different from when it did two weeks ago and not necessarily better . Hope its good, I know the ABV is nice at about 6% I've never had a FG that low...

It finally stopped at 27 days? Wow. How did the flavor change?

It stopped more about 17 days in the secondary. The extra 10 was to let it settle out. As for flavor, it seemed a wee bit more bitter than the taste test at 1.014. Also, a bit thin and alcohol'ish? I think I read somewhere that can be a bad thing eh? 6 weeks to end up with a suspect batch would make for an angry homebrewer! We shall see...
