Still Not Bottling

SG 1.011

Airlock activity is minimal, there’s still some popping going on but it’s too slow to bother measuring, maybe once every 5 or 6 minutes. SG weighs in at 1.011 again, lumps starting to form in the green film on top. Instructions advise not to bottle until SG is stable for 48 hours (check) and has reached reached 1.005 (nope) so I’m going to let it ride for another 48 hours and then review. Taste is OK, quite hoppy and only slightly sweet, colour a bright and hazy funk with a tint of green luminescence. The only weird thing is some lumps and detritus that was sucked up by the pipette grabbing the sample. I was nowhere near the bottom (or the top) of the bucket, so I’m guessing there must be some suspension in there. Let’s not leave it too long before bottling.
