Possibly an unusual question..

Ive brewed an AG Doom Bar clone, which is currently sat in the FV on the yeast cake/trub in my brew fridge in the garage.

It's already been sat for about 4 weeks after finishing fermentation, and I was hoping to bottle it in the next few days. I'm now off on a work trip for the next 2 weeks, so it's going to have to sit a bit longer now.

Will this adversely affect the beer at all? It's been held at around 5 degrees the past few weeks and I can lower the temp again if possible.

If you cant get it bottled before you go then you are going to find out in a couple of weeks! :-) I think it will be fine as long as it is sealed well. What FV vessel are you using?

It's a plastic FV, lid and airlock fitted, sitting in my fermenting fridge albeit without being powered on as the garage is chillier than the missus.

Seems like it may not be a problem then! Looking forward to getting back, bottling and conditioning it.

Thanks.
