American Wheat Fermentation complete?
So I made the following recipe that Thunderworm won 1st place Hybrids (Category 6-7) in the HBT BJCP 2011 contest.
I brewed on 8/14/11 with an OG of 1.055
on 8/28/11 took a reading at 1.016
Today (9/6/11) I took a reading at 1.016 also. DO you think I'm finished, I'm in no hurry but I thought it would drop more to the 1.012 range.
It has been fermenting at around 69F. And the reading at 8/28 the yeast was still cleaning up. Today the surface was clean except a few yeast specs.
