ok…I need your help with this.
I have a lager brewing from a kit that went into the fermenter on the 20th of January. My og was 1038. The weather was definitely too warm for a lager but we have all made rookie mistakes and I know next time I'll have better means of keeping it cool. But within two days my gravity reading was at 1016. Ok, fine…but my next reading on the 26th was again 1016. The 27th…1016.
So I'm thinking it's time to bottle. Yes I'm going to have a lesser alcohol content but again it's my rookie brew.
I start to prepare for bottling this morning and I think to myself "let"s check the gravity again" and what do you know…it"s 1012.
Now, it has cleared up nicely. There has been no bubbling or movement from the airlock, although I understand that means nothing. There's sediment on the bottom of the fermenter. It tastes good too.
My question is what do I do?
Will it do any harm to leave it for a couple more days?
Should I just bottle it?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
