I'm fairly new to homebrewing. I'm on about my 5th batch, a Belgian white ale. I got a secondary fermenter for my birthday, so this is my first time using it. Unfortunately, my life also spiraled out of control the past few months, and the batch has been sitting there for almost 6 weeks.
Is that too long? I'm worried that the yeast has autolysed or gone inactive.
My life has calmed down enough to the point that I can bottle sometime soon, but is it worth it? Or am I wasting my time, because it's just going to turn out nasty? If I add priming sugars, will there be enough active yeast to carbonate it (assuming the flavor is still fine)?
Advice would be greatly appreciated!
