I am brewing my first batch ever. It´s Coopers Traditional Draught. It´s been in the fermentation bucket for five days. The original density was 1040. For the last two days it´s been 1010. So I think it´s time to bottle and kegging.
The odd part is that when i took the last hydrometer reading this morning, I smelled it and it had a strong alcohol smell.
So, I took out my pint glass, poured half a pint, and tasted it. It had a very strong alcohol taste, too.
Is this normal? I originally added 950 grams of sugar to the kit. When kegging and bottling, should I add the standard 6 grams per liter? Or less?
Is my beer ruined? (Sorry for the topic, but I am really excited about brewing my own)
