So I brewed a 10 Gal batch of American Amber Ale and a few things went unplanned that day for a number of reasons. The short of it is I only had an efficiency of 63% with an O.G. of 1.048 and a F.G. of 1.020 for an ABV of about 3.5%. I racked the beer after the fermentation had stopped (about 2 and a half weeks) and let it sit for a week. Now I have it in a cooler for a cold crash as not everything has settles out and the fermentation has stopped. The beer tastes okay but I feel that it could ferment some more. So I could either bottle it as is and have a lawnmower beer or I could add lager yeast and DME and let it sit for 2 months to finish out and clear up (hopefully). So what would you do?
I have enough! This is more of an experiment I suppose. I think I will bottle half and lager the rest just to see the difference. Although I am barley in the bottling range and worry about them exploding if fermentation picks back up.
