Default Fermenting still or not help

Hello all, i have brewed about 5 batches already and after 3 weeks of fermenting its ready to hit the keg. My last batch is on its 6th week and the inside if the airlock is raised up but dont see it bubbling. Do i just go by a consistant fg reading or the airlock?

Yes, you should go by gravity readings. Take one today, then another on Wednesday. If they are the same, you should be all set.

Yes to gravity readings! If it is stable and not dropping the beer is done, bubbles mean nothing
