Long Ferment?

11 posts in this topic

I've got a Long Play IPA batch going, and on day 19, I've still got some tiny bubbles rising if I look with a flashlight. I normally would be crashing it by now if not for this. I'm wondering if this is normal, and it's just that this batch is light enough I'm color for me to see it? Should I wait until all that activity stops?

I never look at bubbles.  What does your hydrometer say?

Hadnt had a chance to catch a sample yet.

So yeah, I forgot I brewed this with one pack of booster. My OG was 1.058, and I'm getting 1.013 now, so I'm pushing 6% ABV. I think it's probably done.

That is great attenuation. Which yeast?

Plain old Mr. Beer yeast. However, "Long Play" was actually stamped on the packet though, I don't know if it makes it special or not.

Perhaps someone from MB could tell us. Enjoy!

Oh, I'm sure they could, lol. I've gotten over 70% many times with Mr B yeast.
