Brewed and bottled.
It's made to produce 32 pints of 5% abv. If I were knocking it up, I'd keep it as it is. Woodford's is tasty beer anyway. If you want to make it a bit pokier, you could brew it short to 27 pints, which should give you around 6% abv. Three months in the bottle is about right, but you're going to need 2 or 3 weeks fermentation before you get it in the bottle so get cracking!Just been given a Admirals reserve kit, any advice for additions to this kit to make it suitably Christmassy appreciated or keep as is and do a separate Christmas brew? Effectively will be three months in the bottle too short?
If it's ready for packaging, three months+ is a long time to tie up a keg. Unless you've got loads of kegs. of course.How's everyone doing with this? I'm gonna check the fg in a moment to see if it's budged off the 1.023 measured about 8 days ago.
Plus...I'm debating whether to keg it in my Wilko keg which now seems to be behaving or to bottle ...
Been in the (plastic) FV for about 4 days. It had a domed lid after about 45 mins which surprised me as I'm using dry yeast.How's everyone doing with this?
