I just bottled my first brew, it was a sweet stout from northern brewer. It looks good, smells good, and tastes good. My question is my starting gravity was 1060 which was supposed to be at around 1045, I may not have mixed it up enough at the beginning.
After 1 week the gravity was 1022, the next day it was 1022 so I racked it to a secondary carboy. It sat in the second for about 12 days, had time to bottle so checked the gravity again and had 1022 still. Needless to say I bottled it, am I asking for bottle bombs?
Should I have waited longer before bottling?
My second batch was a nut brown ale after a week the gravity was 1011, put that in a secondary also.
I did check my hydrometer and it is very close to being perfect 1000 in water.
Great forum has helped alot, lets hope I can keep the mistakes to a minimum (don't want to waste beer).
