I ordered my new Essentials Starter Kit for my birthday (yay!). Then, we had a family emergency. My kit arrived last week while I was out of town, and I’m leaving again twice in the next few weeks. Basically, it looks like I can either have my brew day Saturday, and then let it ferment for almost four weeks instead of two before bottling, or leave the whole kit alone and just brew it when I get back towards the end of July. The dried yeast packet is in the fridge, so now my big questions are:
- Is there anything else that should be refrigerated?
- Is it better to let it ferment longer or just sit longer before starting?
- Will either wait cause harm to my new beer?
In case it’s important, I have the American Wheat recipe kit and also the Mad Brewer’s Upgrade Kit. And, in case you can’t tell, I’m new to homebrew and anxious to get started! :cheers:
