8 Your homebrew experiment

Your homebrew experiment should be well over half way complete at this stage – you may wish to repeat the hydrometer readings from Week 4 to check on its progress, but otherwise you will return to your homebrew experiment in Week 8 to check the final alcohol content. However for any scientific experiment it is always good practice to keep an eye on your apparatus and keep a note of any observed changes as they occur – so for example any changes to the colour or appearance of the brewing beer, along with the date and times these are observed.
