[QUOTE=rono73]Hi there. I recently brewed my first batch, a German Pilsner, and I did everything right except I didn't realize I needed to put water in the fermentation lock. After 4 days, I realized it and filled it up. I took a Hydrometer reading on day 4, 1.022, and on day 6 the reading is the same. The original gravity was 1.055, and the expected gravity from the recipe is 1.012. Did I screw up, or can I bottle it and age it a couple weeks for carbonation? Help![/QUOT
I'd wait a couple weeks before I bottled. Your fermentation temp might be too low for the yeast variety, which would slow things way down. If the temp seems right, give it a taste. If it tastes sweet, you need more time. If it tastes fine, then let it set in the secondary for a week to drop clear, then bottle.
Hope this helps..
