One my second beer kit and things are progressing slower than expected:
I've got a batch of St Peter's Ruby ale in the fermentaion bucket at the moment. It's been there since last Friday but is still bubbling slowly away. Hydrometer measures 1019. I doubt it'll be done by Sunday. After which I am busy until the following Friday.
My plan is to leave it in the bucket until next Friday 29th (another week) and then transfer it a new bucket (leaving the sediment behind). I'll then bottle and add sugar on the Monday 2nd.
Assuming all remains sterile is this likely to work?
