First batch, brewed it a week ago. It's an Amber Ale kit. I calculated the boil gravity at 108, and the wort original gravity at 43.2. I forgot to actually measure with the Fermometer... DOH!
Fermentation took off within 3 hours or so, really going at it. After 2 days, the bubbling had pretty much subsided. I used a wine thief to pull out some to measure the gravity at that time, and it was 21. I put on an airlock, and it hasn't seemed to bubble at all since then.
As of today, a lot of sedimentation has taken place- the top 2/3 of the fermenter is definitely clearer than before. I decided to test again- and the gravity is at 20. The beer tastes pretty much the same as it did when I first tested it- definitely beer, and good, but doesn't seem like it's quite there yet. I also calculated that the alcohol content is 2.3%...
So my question is this- do I pitch more yeast? Do I stir to get the yeast back up, and maybe active? Do I wait another week? Do I bottle?
Let me know what other info you need, and thanks.
