My beer has been fermenting for 3 days in the fastfermenter at 20 to 21 degs c. it was bubbing away beautifully. Just changed the bottom and cleaned out of trub at least I thought it was trub but looked awful like yeast. Hmm anyway, took a sample for hydrometer and tasted it, definitely beer lovely and can taste alcohol, strong. Can not figure what I am reading on hydrometer but it is in the black where is says bottling. It has only been 3 day. I m going to leave it for another week.

Hydrometer is reading 1010 which is the end gravity according to my recipe. I did not measure the start gravity but it should have been 1040. Who knows what is really is. I will make sure I do not miss that step on next time.

General rule is 3 days without any movement on gravity.

 

yeast does naturally settle to the bottom and can be reused if kept in the correct conditions

It's an interesting hobby,  I started with kit brews way back....maybe 30 years ago....Muntons did some good kits that were drinkable.  https://www.muntonshomebrew.com/

Like a load of guys I did the same route, kit, BIAB, the 3 pots,  even bought a Braumeister  https://www.speidels-braumeister.de/en/home.html now that was the dogs do-dars. At 1 time I had 9 cornies, C0s, and an old tall fridge made into a Kegerator.

Sold the Braumeister about 4/5 years back, along with 6 of the cornies, still have the boiler, mash tun, 2 fermentation fridges, and bits & bobs. 

Now I have a large garage with elec, running water, I may dust it all off and have a go, nothing would be better than a glass of craft beer along with a rack of ribs on a nice summers day.

My favourite brews are the Trappist brews, love them, but they are another step up the ladder, with double yeasts,  and all the works. One beer that a friend & I did get very close too was a French beer called Pelforth..https://souriredessaveurs.com/en/1595-beer-pelforth-brown-french-65-25-cl.html

Just a few old photos from my past....

Have you brewed anything recently mate. i did my 2nd brew on Sat. I have and am learning loads.Water treatment is going well, the Grainfather makes things so easy.  Exmoor Gold Clone fermenting since Sat is bubbling away in the pharmacy fridge @Raptor72gifted me. Looking lie it wil peak out in bottles at 4.9% rather than 4.6 but that is  fine as I was litre short on the sparge as I liquored down.

Not at all,  too busy with the house move and all the work that's required on the bungalow. Maybe next year will see how the gout goes until then.
