So after 11 days in the primary, and not having taken a gravity reading after the boil and cool down. I have taken my first gravity reading and would like some help interpeting it.
The temp of the gravity reading was perfect so no adjustment is needed.
Ok so when i drop the hydrometer in and make sure there is no bubbles etc etc it rests just a TINY bit below 1.00
Would this be interpeted as 1.0039 or 1.0078. its basically two tiny lines below 1.00 where it is colored "finished beer"
My beer looks like beer, and tastes like beer!
I guess there is no way to know Alc% although it tasted strong......
What I will be doing is letting it sit for 4-5 more days, and putting it in my basement where it is roughtly 10-15 degrees cooler. Then bottling.
This was all acomplished with you're guys help! thanks so much
