Brewed a Rye Stout kit 2 weeks ago. Per instructions, they say 2 weeks primary, then straight to bottles for conditioning. I know there is a lot of debate about the need for secondaries, and I have heard both sides, but why with this recipe does it say only 2 weeks in primary and bottle. Looking at other stout recipes, it appears they had more time in the carboy’s, like 3-5 weeks regardless of secondary. I’m inquiring, because I’m wondering if I should bottle the stout and start the next brew (a Belgian Ale) or transfer to a secondary and let is sit for a few more weeks in order to free up the 6gal carboy for the belgian. Let me know what you think.
