So two weeks later, the gravity has not changed. After 30 days, it is at 1.042, unchanged since day 19. ABV is 11%. The beer tastes good, but I know I do not have a refined pallet.
So since I'm off the expected final gravity by about 11 points, do I bottle now or is there still a risk of bottle bombs/ over carbonation?
Fermenting a RIS. The OG was 1.110 (hydrometer). The recipe called for a FG of 1.031. I'm using WLP028 (Edinburgh Scottish Ale). It was from a previous 5 gallon batch and was half the yeast cake. Only one day passed from harvesting the yeast and starting this beer. Fermented at 69°F, raised to 71°F after the first week.
