It's fine. The primary part of the fermentation has completed. Right now the yeasts are
cleaning up after themselves. I would allow it at least another seven days before you touch it.

temps in the upper 70's. The fermentation was vigorous. I gave it 4 weeks in the primary before

Posted in thread: overshooting FG what can i expect on 07-05-2014 at 03:25 AM
