Default Saison Still seems to fermenting in secondary...

Oaked it last week w/ medium toast French oak soaked in Maderia... And it's still seems to be bubbling a bit. Really wanted to bottle it tomorrow but seems like I should give it another week... Unless I gave it an infection... Any recommendations to see if I've F'd it up or should I just wait a week. Thanks

bubbling really means nothing. It could be as simple as a pressure change. There is a video floating around that shows an airlock on an empty carboy bubbling.

Take a gravity reading to see where it is at. That is the only way to tell if it is done.

I write a blog, I try to help people around here, and all people care about is my bubbling empty carboy video.
