Hi, I'm new in these parts so please have mercy on me. I started a
Black Rock Mex Lager last week. Mostly because my wife likes it. Might
be ok for summer afternoons though. My starting gravity
was...1035-1040,after fermentation stopped its....1010. Is this a
stalled ferm.? If I can't restart it can it be bottled once clear and
use a reduced amount of priming sugar? Say 1/2 cup per 23 liters or so?
Don't want any WMD's here you know.     andy j.

Even though your beer may seem it has stopped fermenting, it's probably
just
slowed down a bit. Leave it in the secondary for a week, then take
another
reading and have a taste. If it tastes dry then you can bottle it
without
worries
using the normal amount of priming sugar.

Unless someone has made the exact same beer that you are doing now, I
think
it's pretty much impossible to say whether your beer has fermented
completely
or not. The final gravity varies a lot from beer to another and depends
on many
things.
