Black Ale beer fermenting for ten days now.

Ten days of primary fermentation have passed. The Black Ale is done. Yeast is still in suspension. I'll probably rack it into a keg or two and chill it. That should help the yeast flocculate out.

I probably could have done this days ago, but, just haven't gotten around to it. I generally don't worry about it sitting in the primary on the yeast cake until about three or four weeks. Only had one beer pickup off tastes from autolysis (How to Brew: Everything You Need To Know To Brew Beer Right The First TimeAmazon) and that was because I totally forgot about it. Must have been on it for over two months.
