Bat out of a bell

Wow pitched a nicely working starter of Liberty Bell on Saturday and 60 hours later it was done. No additional heat provided. Way faster than saf 05 which I've used exclusively for last couple of years. Tempted not to prime the bottles as I cant believe all longer chain sugars have been munched yet, any views on that other than buy a new hydrometer...it broke years ago.

How do you know that the intended gravity was reached after 60 hours without a hydrometer :scratch: :scratch:

I find that my brews run out of steam at 1.013 after 3-4 days but they will still drop to 1.010ish by the time they've spent the full 14 days in the FV followed by another 14 days in the conditioning barrel. This month routine reduces the number of over carbonated beers but I still get the occasional surprise ;^)
