Brewed a BIAB Pale Ale 12 days ago. Opened up the fermenter today, thinking MAYBE I can bottle it. took a sample, the Reading was 1.020(OG was 1.052). Ok its not done yet, but tasted the sample and it tasted like apples, had a strong alcohol aroma too, burnt my nose.
3.25 gallon Recipe is:
6lbs 2 row
.25 munich 10L
.5oz Horizon 60 min
.5 Cascade 15 min
.5 Willamette FO
1 pkg US-05(maybe too much yeast for the volume?)
Will the apple flavor go away? and will the gravity go down any?
Was thinking about leaving it sit and checking it in 7 days.
