I am trying to brew my first batch of beer using the Mr Beer kit.  The
instructions told me to let the beer sit for 1 week to allow the yeast
to work.  After a week it said that there should be no yeast colonies
still floating on top.  It has been two weeks and there are still some
yeast colonies floating on top.  Is this normal after two weeks and can
I move to the bottling step, or should I continue to wait.  Help!

Go to Yahoo groups Home Brewing.  Lots of good information there.

  You will fined that after you get into home brewing some you will not be
going by the Mr Beer instruction that much. I think they just like to keep
it simple.
 But do look at the Yahoo home brewing groups.

if the airlock( does the mr beer kit come with one?) stopped popping,
rack it. We usually let our beer stay in the fermenter for about 6 days
before we rack it the first time..then add finings and wait a couple
days, then rack it again...then bottle. But that's for without the mr.
beer kit. I would guess it would be about the same though cause they
said wait a week.
