Should i keg it?
Quick question, I have a Double Oatmeal Stout extract kit on the go. Its at 1.014 for the last 3 days. I usually like it under 1.010. Can I keg it or is the fermentation stuck? What should I do?...thanks.

It's done. 1.014 is actually on the lowish side for an oatmeal stout, or at least low/mid range. Mine finish at 1.018 usually.

Definately keg...people concerned with stuck fermentations are usually up over 1.024 (depending on OG).

That's all I need, I'm starting right now. Thanks for the prompt replays.

Never done a oatmeal Stout before, a ton of ales but the first oatmeal Stout...thanks again.

O.K. All done keging. Start at 1.042 and end at 1.014, 3.7% APV. My buddies will laugh at me. I guess I should have added more sugar? Didn't expect it to end at 1.014.
