...I just brewed my first extract brew on Saturday afternoon. It was fermenting nicely by Sunday morning and really moving by Sunday evening. On Monday morning all the Krausen was gone, all the solids were on the bottom and the beer was a bit hazy. I searched here and after reading everything I decided to take a reading with the hydrometer and lo and behold it is very near the FG (1.010 vice 1.008). I tasted the sample and it tastes and smells alot like beer. I guess my question would be, does dry yeast normally ferment out that fast? The airlock is still farting slowly but I have read that's not any kind of reliable indicator of fermentation.
Anyways, I think it's probably fine and I'm worrying about nothing. Thoughts?
