Default First brew... Bubbling stopped.

Yeah, yeah, I know. The gas doesn't tell you when it's done. But the expected final gravity is between 1.010 and 1.014, and it's currently at 1.018. I took a swig, and it tasted like beer. Flat, but not bad.

I'm going to wait a few days, and check again. If it hasn't changed, I'm going to bottle it and than forget it for about a month.

How long has it been fermenting?

I don't doubt you have the will power to not touch it, but there's no way you're going to forget about it.

Congrats on your first brew.

How long has it been in the primary? I leave mine for 4 weeks regardless of what the hydro tells me.

Where in NY are you?

Impossible to forget it. I find myself picking up the bottles and staring through them, as if I expect to see something intersting happening. I usually put one in the fridge for 48 hours at the 2 week mark to sample for carbonation and flavor.
