Ok i brewed my first ever batch, an Irish Stout last tuesday and everything went great. I hit the low end with a 1.046 SG. Airlock bubble away for 3 days then stopped on friday. I ignored the batch saturday and the took a reading on sunday and got a 1.014. Checked again today and again 1.014, but was less than 24 hours. According to my math that puts it at 4.2 ABV.
The kit doesnt give a FG, but does say that the ABV should be 4.5 - 5.0. Is this common for the ABV to be off that much? I realize that it isnt alot, but nonetheless it is low. I would like to rack to a secondary and start a new brew cycle in the primary, but i dont want to jump the gun.
Would you rack it or wait?????
