My evil dog ipa went fast too but I have it outside wrapped in blankets connected to an ink bird so it’s not getting too hot.I’ve had fermentation’s that fast although this kit usually takes a while.
Good beer at the end of it though
Five days sounds about right. I've had it ranging from about 4-7. I like to keep mine at 22c. But I do leave for the full 2 weeks. I find this clears pretty fast too.Looks like this has fermented in 5 days at 22C. Gravity is 1.008. Gonna leave it for 2 weeks total and let it settle. Tastes and smells great though so don’t think the fast fermentation has done any damage.
Sorry for my slow reply. yes once you add the hops keep going as you started. Maintain a constant temp and try to minimise any fluctuation. As you brew more you will find your own flow and get a better idea of what works best for your setup. It's a continuous learning cycle. Id recommend starting your next brew soon after you bottle this one. Get into the mindset that each brew is roughly 2 months (2 weeks fermenting, 2 weeks carbonating, 2 weeks clearing + 2 weeks extra) That way you're less likely to be impatient waiting for your beer to be ready.Thanks, good to know as this is only my second brew. Do you keep it warm after you hop?
