Wow. How long can you keep wort in fermentation? I'd assume spoilage at a certain point?

Spoilage requires bacteria that doesn't really do too well in beer. Some beers sit in a fermenter for years... I'm actually surprised a homebrewer would even ask this question.

What yeast strain is it? I use English ale yeast in most of my beers and 1.060 to 1.020 sounds just about right to me! (Maybe just barely underattenuated but nothing to cry over.)

Did you know everything the first day you brewed? Do you know everything now? Give the guy a break.

It's an Ontario thing.

Some people primary for 2-4weeks, some keep it in there for 2 or more months. I try for 3 weeks unless it's a wheat.
