Don't be fooled by high SG readings

Many beers finish with a higher SG reading than you expect. This happens because added malts etc. that do not ferment completely.

This has the effect of giving your beer more body & a better head which is a good thing. When your beer looks like it has stopped, check the SG. Wait 2 days & check it again.

If the 2nd reading is the same as the first, it's finished.
DON'T WORRY . . . IT REALLY IS OK TO BOTTLE IT.
