I brewed a Wit using w3944, made an appropiate starter, started ferm. at 64 degrees and it is still going after 10 days!
The ferm. started slowly, was very gentle, I slowly warmed it up to 68 after a few days. The ferm. was still kinda slow, so I have it warmed up to 72-73 and is going stronger now. Two days back the gravity was 1.026... (O.G. 1.052)...I tasted it when I took the reading and no contamination is evident.
Has anybody else experienced this same ferm. profile?
Just wondering if a prolonged fermentation period has any negative effects?
How much longer will this go on?
Will check gravity again tomorrow to determine if I should dump this batch or wait it out.
