In making my first batch today, I followed the directions of the beer kit I purchased. On the label they list the OG at 1.043. When I took the reading with my hydrometer, I got 1.04(the balling reading was at 10).
So I'm guessing I will take the second reading after the 7 days. Am I looking to have the final gravity at the same reading as my first? Should I check it any sooner?
Thanks in advance.
