Thats not so bad.

I guess it will come out to around 4.5% while secondary.

It needs to clear for a week or two before bottling.:cross:

cool, thanks.

I think i'll leave it for 2 weeks in the secondary and then bottle it.

Even if its 4% id still be happy. But it going down to 1.020 makes me think it might only come out to 3% ......
