leave the kiddies alone and let them grow up to be wonderful beers!

it's good to taste along the way, but don't ever worry about it until the final product...and don't ever give up on it (unless it makes you puke from the smell, especially if you puke IN the fermenter)

To revive an old thread. I am in the same boat! My Dbl Belgian spent 8 days in the primary with an OG 1.082 and has been in the secondary for 14 days now and it started out sweet but now taste just like sherry or a port. My OG has been at 1.020 for the past 4 days should I just bottle it and forget about it for a month or two? How did yours turn out?

you should never transfer to secondary until it is finished fermenting in the primary.

you're at 76% attenuation, tho. i'd say it's done.

It was my first brew so I just went with what the local store wrote down. I now keep all them for at least two weeks in primary. But should I assume that this will mellow out after a few weeks or months:-( in the bottle.

Thanks
