An extra week of bulk aging or bottle conditioning?
I made our host’s Alt kit. I want it ready for a fellow homebrewer’s End-of-Oktoberfest party on Oct. 6. It’s been in the bucket for 2.5 weeks now (60-65 degrees range) the krausen has dropped. I am not bothering with a secondary.
I was planning on bottling on the 6th week (per directions) but after reading the reviews, I am wondering if I should bottle on the 5th week and give it 4 weeks in the bottles as a few reviews suggested.
Any advice would be appreciated.
