Default 4 weeks and still fermenting

Hi,

I am 4 weeks in and counting, and it is still going strong, slow, but definitely still going.

It has dropped from an OG of 10:47 to 10:16/10:17.

It tastes great, so not too worried, but should I be?

Think it will be ready in about 4-5 days at current rate

I'm confused, you've taken readings 3 days in a row and they keep changing from 1.016? If its just gas bubbling that can just be off gassing and not a sign of continued fermentation. Depending on what your brewed, beer, yeast, temps, etc. A FG of 1.016 can be normal. Need more info.

John

Sorry for the confusion.

At 4 weeks the reading was 10:20, 4 days later it was 10:16

Not sure why it took 4 weeks to go from the OG of 10:47 to 10:20.

I am thinking therefore it will reach 10:12 in the next 4 days

I hope this makes more sense
