Kegging or bottling? Two weeks is plenty, one week and you should be fine.

Upon opening the fermenter for a gravity reading today, I found it like this. It appears from the ring that the cap has fallen back but yet there's still this layer on top. I don't have experience with this strain. Is this expected? I plan to follow Kai's instructions for fining, but not without consistent SG readings. Today's reading was ~1.013. Right on track with the recipe. I'll check again tomorrow. Taste is good with a dry body and a good malt and roast flavor. Great recipe!
This is what all top cropping strains do. German wheat, alt, some english yeasts, a few american yeasts all do this. After fermentation is done the yeast form goopy glumps on the surface.

I had a day to kill so I triple decocted this in march. Just bottled today. Quite a tasty beer indeed. Im very excited for it to carb up. Im going to have to try a single infusion version to see if all the decoction made a difference.Anyway cheers to you kai.
