Ok this is a first, I've seen personally. 14 day's in Primary now, 1.07+ OG Belgian Ale with WYeast 1338.
I took a Gravity reading after 8 day's at 1.035... now another 6 day's and it's only down to 1.018... Lots of yeast still in suspension (wort).
It hasn't gotten infected and I can start to taste the alcohol over the sweetness now with the 2nd gravity reading.
I've kept this in a temp range of 66-70 deg F. Recipe says 68-70 so not far off but the recipe also indicates 5-10 days in fermenter...
So for future ref for myself, should I expect this long of a fermentation with WYeast 1338? Or should it have gone faster?
Guess I'm thinking I've just not managed to give the yeasties the "Right' conditions to do their best work.
It should be good beer from the samples though. I'm hopeing that it's not still green come new years.... Fingers crossed this finishes up in the next week, so I can go to 2ndary next week and then to keg by the 2nd week of Dec... if I slide further in this schedule... I think I'm Hozed...
