It’s been about 1 1/2 weeks since brewing and I see that the bubbling in the airlock is very minimal so I decided to check the gravity with my hydrometer. My starting gravity was 1.053. I’m expecting to bottle at around 1.005 or so. After measuring the current gravity I know it’s not ready yet. It measures at 1.015. I’m getting close though. I will check it again in a few days to see if or how much it has gone down.
My next brew will be Cooke Street Cream Ale. I got the recipe from the Home Brew In Paradise recipe book. It looks like a delicious recipe. It is a nice light beer that should be slightly sweet and have a clean crisp flavor. This is the kind of recipe I was looking for two weeks ago. At any rate, I will document the brewing of this beer closely some time next week. So check back soon.
