Should I add more yeast? I also tasted it and the brew was abit sweet so I'm thinking there was not enough yeast added at the begin.
Hello Andyy....Vigorous fermentation in Ales is between 2-6 days, Lager is 4-10 days...however the beer is still fermenting, primary fermentation is usually finished after 14 days, at this time your beer will begin to condition for up to another week.
My best advice....leave you beer alone for a total of 2 weeks, at this point take a gravity reading (you should be spot on)...but dont bottle it yet, let is sit for another 3 - 7 days and then bottle, allowing for conditioning. In general I leave all my ales in the primary for 3 weeks and then keg/bottle.
Here is a great online book for you to read (chapter 8 is fermentation):http://www.howtobrew.com/sitemap.html
Good luck, I hope it turns out ok!
