Most of my beers are primary only. I do make exceptions when dry hopping and also when I use

If fermentation is complete you should be OK. You would, basically, be lagering it. If not,

Posted in thread: Irish Stout (ie Guiness Draught) Extract recipe anyone ? on 11-21-2013 at 10:20 AM
Not an easy brew to replicate. Even if you get close you would need to keg it and carbonate

At that temperature you should have well carbonated beer in 2 weeks or so. I would guess that
your yeast dropped out of suspension and you don't have enough left to do the job. I had the
same problem ...

After I re-read my reply I realize I should have worded it a little differently, so that I
agree with what you said was good, but needed the settling time. Hope you didn't take it as

You want to make absolutely certain that your fermentation is totally finished. That usually
means 7-10 days and checking gravity readings on a minimum of day 5 and again on day 7 and if
