Yeah, yeah, I know. The gas doesn't tell you when it's done. But the expected final gravity is between 1.010 and 1.014, and it's currently at 1.018. I took a swig, and it tasted like beer. Flat, but not bad.

I'm going to wait a few days, and check again. If it hasn't changed, I'm going to bottle it and than forget it for about a month.

I don't doubt you have the will power to not touch it, but there's no way you're going to forget about it. :D

Congrats on your first brew. :mug:

How long has it been in the primary? I leave mine for 4 weeks regardless of what the hydro tells me.

Where in NY are you?

Impossible to forget it. I find myself picking up the bottles and staring through them, as if I expect to see something intersting happening. I usually put one in the fridge for 48 hours at the 2 week mark to sample for carbonation and flavor.
