Some time mid January I cooked up the BB Russian imperial stout. I keep it in my basement, which is between 55 and 60, but It seemed to be fermenting fine. Transfered to secondary after 3 weeks and afterwards( i know its backwards) took a hydrometer reading, was at 1025....shoot.(supposed to be 1017-1020)
Anyway I had it and another beer still in my basement with a heating pad, last week took another reading... still 1023.
Moved it upstairs to where its between 60-70, after a day seen a few bubbles said yay, must be doing something good. After a week took a hydrometer reading and sadly its still at 1023. Must of been because of the temp change.
It tastes really delicious. I want to bottle it up. Will it be safe to do at 1023? Its really only 3 away from what its supposed to be. Any suggestions?
