Long Play IPA kit

7 posts in this topic

I just got a Mr Beer long play IPA kit for Christmas and on the 31st I started the process of brewing my first beer. This is all new to me so I'm interested to see how the beer is going to turn out.. Not sure if this type of beer is going to be bitter or not.

I started fermenting a Long Play IPA on New Years Day. It made a little foam, a lot of trub and had steady little bubbles. I noticed the last couple of days that it has stopped bubbling completely and is clear. I do not have a hydrometer. Should I leave it sitting on the trub for another week, or could it be ready to bottle? Nervous newbie asking..

Give it a full three weeks.  Just because you can't see activity doesn't mean nothing's going on.  High krausen is over, but the yeast are still at work "cleaning up" your beer.

Thanks guys for keeping me grounded.. I've read that a bunch of times here, but have been reading and watching videos elsewhere that led me astray. Patience!!!!!

Yep.  I'm not by nature a patient person but this is a hobby that demands it.  And the good thing about it is that your patience is rewarded.
