Mine didn't budge a point. After 30 days, it's still at 1.019. Now it's resting under gas @ 40f for a while. It didn't taste too sweet either, surprising since it's somewhat high.

For the next batch, I'll pitch more yeast and see what happens.

Default when to switch to secondary?


I have my Pious New World in the primary for 8 days and it has gone down to .017 and is now at 73 degress.

when would be a good time to transfer it, if at all?

.012 is target FG, so if you can get it down to that, you're golden.

Leave it on the yeast for about 2 or 3 weeks. If you are kegging do so at that point and let it age around 55-60 for 2 months. After that pop it in the kegerator and check it out.

Ok, just popped another old world.

I read nearly all the pages of this thread when i brewed it. "Let it age" "Dont even bother drinking it before 6 months." blah blah blah. Bunch of old woman!

Only... so farking true... This one is getting close to a year old now. It tastes like a different beer now! I am not exagerating, if you tasted this at 3 months, 6 months, and now... you would say they were three different beers.

Freaking amazing beer! Cheers to the OP! One of my facourites, without a doubt.

Took me a few minutes to decide to take a pic, so some of the head had died down... still a beautiful beer i reckon!



PS... its kicking my ass! one beer! it is 11.3% though... OG: 1.090 FG 1.010

That looks great, I love the effect of the black beer with the white head. I'm excited to try mine (in a year)

I think mine is finished.
FG 1.091
5 days later it was at 1.020
Now it's 5 more days, and still at 1.020
I think I'll leave it another week or so in the fermenter, then keg it.
The hydrometer samples taste really good already.

You missed the target FG by quite a bit, it should be much lower by now.

How big was your starter? Did you use pure O2 to oxygenate?
