You can bottle when the Fg has been stable for at least a few days and the beer is clear. There isn't any rule of thumb for using a clearing vessel ("secondary") so you can keep it there from 0 days to 6 months if you choose to use one. If you're leaving it in the primary for three weeks, I don't see the advantage to a clearing vessel.

It'll age in the bottle as well as it'll age in the carboy. I'd bottle when it's clear, and then let it age.

It's a good beer- I hope you like it as much as we do in our house. Let me know what you think when it's finished!

Well i just took a FG reading reading 1.031 at 65 dagrees on a calibrated 60 dagrees hydrometer. Its been in primary for 20 days. I ran it threw daves dreaded calc. Everything seems fine but I think im still a bit high on FG. FG fpr this kit calls 1.017-1.020. But Like I said its at 65 dagrees at 1.031. I should wait 2 or so days to see if I can get a drop right?

Also as yooper said that I can age in bottles, what would be a estimated time for a bottle condition? Thanks all. Cheers!

That's WAY too high to bottle!

I'm not sure why it's stuck, but I'd pick up the fermenter, swirl it around, and bring it up to 70 degrees.

Thanks fpr the input yooper, I am aware of the high FG for a scary bottle bomb. I can bring my primary upstars to a warmer climate for a few days..??? Im at 65 dagrees on my basement floor. I range anywere from 67 at night to 74 during the day. I am not running my air so this is all on mother nature at the moment. Living in midwest close to chicago.

I brought it upstairs its 72 there right now (at the moment) gave it a good shake for about 30 sec or so. Airlock started moving again. (I know not to judge by airlock)

Is the flux between 67 to 72 or 74 dagrees to much for hopefully a few days till the FG goes down?
