Also, a 1.036 will finish faster than one with a higher OG. You might also have some tiny leak after changing the airlock, maybe where the airlock shaft goes in. I wouldn't sweat it-- airlock bubbles are a pretty gross indication of what's going on.
Boy, that's the truth! I'm just entering the world of low gravity fermentation. For other beers, it takes 2-3 weeks for me. For my American milds, 3 days seems to do it! That's at a controlled 63F using WY1450.
yup, low gravity fermentations are quick. generally I expect to have a <1.040 beer fully carbed and serving in 2 weeks. Heck, in two weeks it'll be half gone.
I have a neighbor that says he won't waste the propane on a low gravity beer, but he loves to drink mine!
Hey, Denny - that Cigar City Mild - El Lector - is in that book "Craft Beers for the Homebrewer". I will be racking it to keg this weekend. I brewed it 8-24-14. Samples were great.
