Let the beer have another 3-7 days to clean up & settle out clear or slightly misty. I wait 2-3 weeks before taking an FG reading.
I actually took a gravity reading before reading this. Oops. Looks like after four days I'm at 1020/1019 from an OG of 1051. I'm going to let it sit for at least another 2 to 3 weeks then ramp temps up a bit to clean things up. I'm sitting at a stable 64-66 in the fermenter, so I thought maybe ramping up to 68-70 during the last week. Thoughts?
