I'm currently brewing my first batch (kit).
It has been fermenting for over a week and has reached a
gravity of 1.019 (recommended per instructions 1.022 or less).
"Fourteen days after the start of fermentation, open and check beer with a hydrometer to be sure the finishing gravity of 1.022 or less has been reached (finishing gravities vary from batch to batch, and yours may be a bit lower). If the gravity is above 1.022, stir beer gently with a sanitized spoon, reseal, and wait 4 more days before rechecking."
Can i bottle? The first 3-4 days were pretty wild with the bubble contraption going wild. I had foam for the first 2 days popping out of the thing. I have read that some time fermentation can be quicker. plus i just got me a 6 gal better bottle i want to try out!
