Well, you should have taken a second reading three days later to be sure it had stabilize, but as cream ales are pretty light and you hit the anticipated FG, and that is a fairly typical fermentation time for a beer as light as a cream ale, you're going to be a-okay.

I think people have a tendency to really want to rush everything so as a response on these boards we have a "*whoa* slow the #@&~ down" reflex. Which is never bad advice. But it's far more pertinent to those who rush far heavier beers on far more regular basis.

And if yooper says it's okay, it's okay.

Ur right to question going that short depending on the style ur brewing. They are known for their belgian wits with spice and cloves and a whole bunch of esters that are signature to those types of beer. U can rush primary with those since the ester byproducts are desired for that style.

With something light like a cream ale, u'd wanna give them a little bit more time to clean up after themselves.

Thanks for all the feed back. I normally don't try to rush things but I brewed this later than i wanted and was hoping to serve for the fourth of July. The thought was I had time but, after I cold crashed I thought it probably should have fermented longer and cold crashed shorter.

I just brewed my cream ale with the same yeast on Sunday, fermenting at ~18 °C. This will help me with my timing (although I do want to add some vanilla beans in a secodary after 7 days in primary). I'm also bottling so I cannot do the cold crash/carbonation combo...

There's your excuse for a repeat of that brew!
