About my O.G. it was 1.042 (recipe 1.037-1.040) F.G. 1.014 (recipe 1.007-1.010) I was 3 days in the primary and 13 days in the secondary then 14 days bottled.
Thanks for your help!
Thats one of the greatest things I have ever heard. Using the sock as a hop bag! Does you beer taste like feet. Okay sorry. Next time you can just throw your hops into the wort. Or if your worried about getting them filtered out try a tea bag. Never heard of it done but it makes sense to me. They were probably pellet hops so you can just leave them in the bottom of you pot when you transfer to primary.
Im not experienced enough to tell you about your hydrometer reading but you possibly could have let it go a week. Feel free to correct me on that one everyone like I said dont know enough about hydrometers.
