I finally tried my hand at a batch of homebrew. Bought a Muntons Premium Bitter kit to which I added 1 pound of Dried Malt Extract and 1/3 ounce Burtons Water Salts. Boiled 45 minutes. Pitched yeast at 78 degrees. Starting S.G. was 1037. Had active fermentation first night and part of next day, then activity died down. Only occasional bubbles through fermentation lock. Tested S.G. on day 7 and it was 1017. Also 1017 on day 8. Sediment visible in bottom of carboy. Taste is close to what I had in mind. Would like to rack and bottle, but read one should not bottle above 1010 or risk exploding bottles. Any suggestions? Thanks!
