It likely was just off gassing co2 in solution after fermentation. Quite common. 1.002 seems low for a 1.056 OG. The cherries must've dried it out pretty good.

Wow that's an attenuation of 98%. What did you ferment with, battery acid?

I think it has to do with the cherries tbh, my neighbor did cherries in his IPA and it exploded but the gravity just dropped like a stone on his satellite which survived. Yeast was just Nottingham Ale yeast. It developed hefty yeast cakes in both the primary and secondary, way way bigger than the other 4 batches so far even in primary the secondary of the cherry porter was bigger...

I have had carbonation in a beer after 1 day in the bottle. The issue is that the beer goes flat really quickly because the CO2 is not in solution. If you think it is good now just wait a couple of weeks. I hardly ever drink stuff unless it has been three weeks in the bottle. this video kinda shows what I mean.

Decided to drink test bottle #3 at day 5... the flavor has changed significantly in one day and the carbonation has gone up a lot... goes to show what an extra day can do...

Tastes a bit like sour rootbeer which is what came to mind. Can barely detect the cherries now...

1.002 is insanely dry for a porter. To be honest, im not even sure how that low of a gravity is attainable with a typical porter grainbill, and its flat out not possible with an extract as far as I or anyone I've brewed with has experienced. What was your recipe and mash temp?

Your beer may have some carbonation, but more than likely it's not fully locked in yet.

Watch poindexter's video from my bottling blog.



Like he shows several times, even @ 1 week, all the hissing, all the foaming can and does happen, but until it's dissolved back into the beer, your don't really have carbonation, with tiny bubbles coming out of solution happening actually inside the glass, not JUST what's happening on the surface.

I wouldn't worry about it. Just check back in 2 more weeks and see what's up.

But there are bubbling forming inside the glass and not just on the surface...
