Bavarian Hefeweizen - question
I normally have a rotation with my carboys.

However - with a Bavarian Hefeweizen should I maybe jump this one up to bottle quicker?

In the normal rotation it would be in the carboys a month. Good? bad?

Probably should be bottled in two weeks.

in two weeks.
define in two week. 2 weeks from now? 2 weeks from brewing?

I usually do 2 weeks in the primary then 1 week in the secondary so most, but not all, of the yeast will fall out.

My HWs are still cloudy, but without a lot of yeast in the bottle.

10 days conditioning and at least 3 days in the fidge results in a great brew. :mug:

I do 10 days in the primary then keg. A BH is all about the yeast, and the freashness. Also, try not to frement to hot. Lower 60's seems to work good for me.

I fermented at 62. It's been 11 days - typically 213 for me so I';ll just make sure I don't procrastinate with it.

Maybe I'll just jump it ahead of my IPA, let that sit an extra week before I dry hop it for a week.
