Forgot my brew now its two weeks later

Postby morgenmuffel » Friday Jun 03, 2016 3:16 pm

I had a bit of free time a fortnight ago and put down some brews, Coopers cheapies and completely forgot I had done them, worked into the spare room an hour ago and realised they were there.

The temperature in the room has probably been around 12-14 degrees, I haven't checked the gravity yet, but will shortly, will they be ok, or should I throw a heat pad under them for a couple of days if the gravity hasn't moved enough?

Never managed to forget a brew before, must be senility or something

If you kegging go for it. If not you could just raise the temp for a few to make sure before bottling.
I'd bottle it

Can ya post a pic?

Just drain carefully and leave it behind if it's not an infection.

Thanks for all the help, I did drain rather carefully, it actually smelt rather appetising, not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing
