Second Batch of Home Brew

Experimental Double Pale Ale

So I dumped two pouches of Mangrove Jacks Pale Ale malt extract and topped up to 25L. No dextrose, that's what the second pouch of malt extract is for.
One sachet of yeast.

Two days later and I have huge krausen and bubbles every 7 seconds. Smells a bit fruity, not sure if that's good or bad.

Initial Gravity Reading 1.0425

Well its been a week, fermentation has slowed. Nice flavour developing, still considering dry hopping.
Gravity now 1.0175

Gravity 1.015 creeeeeeeping down. I want it under 1.01! tasting gooooood though!

Gravity 1.015 still. Hmmmmmmmm is it stuck or finished? I have no idea!

Gravity 1.015 heck it I'm bottling next chance I get.

Yeah I really could have bottle this last week. But its all done now! Dry hopped for two days with some hallertau wakatu in a mesh bag. Next time, more hops, more days.
