Haa cheers mate!i think I've screwed up some where maybe my brain but that's a story for another day.makes no sense.yes it's dropped for sure. Like started at 1036 or close and today it's like 1005.smells ok I tasted it.bit watery but was thinking still ok.I just don't know really?
Probably tastes a bit watery because it is flat still.
Your beer is fine. with a gravity of 1040 it will finish quickly. leave it in the fermenter for about 2 weeks total and then bottle it up.
In the mean time Plamers How to brew book is free at www.howtobrew.com it has some good info.
