comment Slight fizz in beer after 6 days in the fermenter - game over?
Just for the record, after arriving home last night to find my beer down at around 16 degrees I thought I'd give it another taste. I was hopeful since there's a visible scrum ring where it must have bubbled up while I was away, and it does indeed taste fine now (actually doesn't have a lot of taste, but hey) with no sourness! SG is down to around 1015, so am going to give it a few more days and probably bottle on the weekend.

Cool, thanks for the advice mate. Had it in my head that if it was in there too long it'd almost be guaranteed to get infected. This is why I love Stack Exchange. Ok, won't touch it for a week, though I might get a heating belt just to ensure it doesn't get way too cold :)

So three weeks wouldn't be a problem? Because I was expecting around 6-7 days I didn't factor in the fact that I'll be away for 5 days from day after tomorrow, which is 10 days in to the brew in total — so maybe just leave it until I get back and hope for the best?

No foam really - that and the low temperatures are what prompted me to make regular hydrometer readings, to see if something was actually going on in there.
