I brewed up a wheat beer from an extract kit two weeks ago and decided to throw in what was left of an old jar of honey I had (not much... must have been around 8 oz of honey) at the beginning of the boil.
After 8 or 9 days in primary, the S.G. was staying steady at 1.018 (O.G. was 1.052 and the recipe said the F.G should be around 1.012.
Just to make sure I didn't have a stuck fermentation, I transferred it to secondary, where it's been for 5 days.
I could see some really small bubbles rising to the top, so I decided to do some research before I bottled it to play it safe(I had my bottles ready to go and everything). I read that honey can a while longer to ferment out (maybe b/c of more complex sugars for the yeast to break down?) I took a S.G reading and got about a 1.016, so it looks like this may be the case.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Are the little bubbles I am seeing from the honey slowly fermenting. If so, how long should it take to complete? I am letting it sit in the carboy for now...
