Default Will the beer go bad

I have had my second batch of beer sitting in the primary for about a month now. I do a lot of out of town work and won't be home until tomorrow . Will it be ok to bottle? And, that is if I get home tomorrow. I might have be gone another week. Will another week hurt it?

it shouldn't hurt it. it'll probably even benefit it, as the yeast wil have time to clean itself up and then settle

Nope, won't hurt the beer a bit. Bottle it when you have the time and it'll be just fine. Cheers!

As you go through this sight you will find a lot of people, myself included, that will leave a beer in the primary for about that much time. What kind of beer are you making?
