i always take an OG but for some reason ALWAYS just forget to take an SG...i have made some good beer without taking readings so maybe i dont need it . But your stout should be fine...but bottle it pretty soon
I just opened the 2ndary fermentor to bottle the beer and there is a layer of creamy whitish powder or something on top of the layer of beer. It is slippery to the touch. Is smells like alcohol in there though. I recovered it. Is this layer mold? It doesnt smell foul it just looks wierd. I have never seen this before.
