1016 after 3 weeks for me. 1020 is probably not a terrible fg for this beer. 1024 seems a bit
high yet. Check again in 1 week. One of my favs so far and of everyone that's tried it. Plan on

Posted in thread: what is considered "extended aging"? on 03-26-2013 at 01:01 AM
I generally make simple extract kits. I don't use a secondary fetmenter because I don't usually

Lol. A few months back I asked the same question here. I thought my beer was messed up. Smelled
like chemicals. Glad to hear lots of people do this.

You certainly didn't make a weak beer. Your final grav may get down below 1.020. You would have
a 7 plus ABV.Just rough estimates.

1.072 and 1.030. I use Rooftopbrew website and enter those numbers in their ABV calculator. You
probably haven't reached final gravity yet though as its only fermented a week.

I know its horrible advice but DO NOT do this, youll drive yourself crazy. Be confident that
you did everything right!I agree. Timeframes, temperature and sanitation should be your focus.

As an extract brewer, I dump it all in. I don't use secondary but I primary for 3 or 4 weeks,
siphon carefully and bottle. Maybe I've just been lucky but my beers have all been clear. Maybe
