heffe in the secondary?.?.?.?.....
Just checked my heffe that has been cooking for 10 days. Gravity is right were it should be.. Started at 1.050 and today was 1.011. So my question---
I know heffe's are cloudy beers but it was a little "cloudier" that I am looing for. I am going to rack to the secondary but I wanted to bottle this weekend. Would 4-5 days in the secondary be ok or should I relax and let it sit another week for a total of 11-12 days? I understand the advantage of longer secondary times but I still want some "heffe qualities" in the bottle.
I am brewing Saturday so I wanted to bottle and then get the next batch going in the same day. Only pissies SWMBO off for one day instead of two weekends in a row!!
