My temp beer doesn't stop to raise

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


I am doing a clone of the Oberon, a very nice and light summer wheat.

It's been 16 days of fermenting, I used Wyeast 1010, always keep it at 65F.


The thing is that if I am not very careful with my ice bottles (I am using a cooler as fermentation chamber) the temp always tend to spike.

The recipe said two weeks fermentation, but it seems still pretty active to me.


I will take an hydrometer reading but in case the reading is ok and the temp is still raising, what should I do?

I am afraid to bottle, I would like to avoid bottle bombs if the fermentation is still going on.


This is kind of paradoxical, usually people ask for help since the fermentation doesn't start and I have an endless fermentation!


Thanks to anyone who would like to share any solutions or tips!

Your fermentation is most likely complete. You can see activity for days beyond the conclusion of the fermentation. But I would still leave it for another week to allow the yeast to finish cleaning up the beer, then bottle. Just try to keep that temperature in check.
