I recently brewed a partial mash bells two hearted clone it set in the primary for 7 days and dry hopped in the secondary for 18 days I reached my gravities of OG 1.065 and FG 1.014 but it is still bubbling about every 30 seconds or so can I bottle I never had this issue before?
I used a Wyeast 1332 smack pac.

If the FG readings have been consistent for a couple of days, go ahead and bottle. The bubbles really don't mean anything. It is probably just excess CO2 coming out of the beer caused by temperature fluctuations. Remember: Follow the hydrometer, and you'll always be safe. :mug:

I think the issue is that my recipe was altered for max output and my secondary has very little air space approx. 5 1/2 gal. in a 5 gal. carboy.
