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 3 weeks...

what is considered "extended aging"?

I generally make simple extract kits. I don't use a secondary fetmenter because I don't usually need to dry hop or age extensively. 3 or 4 weeks primary is enough. However, im now making a stout...

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 agree. Timeframes, temperature and sanitation should be your focus. Don't over scrutinize the other things. No, u didn't ruin you beer and quite possibly didn't effect it at all.

Nope. It was his beer. He tried it too. I made sure he went first. We had a good laugh but it was very bitter to put it lightly.

eating yeast cake?

Tried a finger full of yeast cake today after racking. My dad always claimed it's a delicacy in Europe. They can keep that crap in Europe because it was disgusting. Just an fyi.

It seems that ideal ferment temps for average ale yeasts are lower/mid 60's. All info says to caronate at 70 degrees. I've heard that a warmer than 70 is fine too. I don't know what the upper limit...

I let mine at room temp for 4 weeks before storing them in my cellar which is 62 or 64 degrees. Carbing will slow under 70 degrees but not stop completely. As for the cold garage, I'm not sure.

This. As your first brew, you'll be blown away at how much different /better it will taste when finished conditioning. My hefeweizen was actually pretty carbed after 1 week.

That OG cannot be correct. Bubbling is not a measurement of fermentation. Secondary is not necessary but can be done. A week or 3 is fine if u must do it at all.

I'm not sure but I think Hefeweizen is supposed to be "yeasty", and bottling before the yeast cake gets very compacted is the way to achieve that.

Is it possible to put a few drops of olive oil (or something similar) on top of the vodka or sanitizer in the airlock. That would prevent the liquid from evaporating? Just asking, never tried it.
