Does it help or aid carbonation?
I just finished a brewers best Imperial Pale Ale all bottled and sat for a few weeks in cool temps. Then per the instructions, I'm to refrigerate for a week before serving. Well I was anxious and after a day on ice I had to try one. Tasted great, great ABV, perfect FG also.
It came out great but not a forceful Pffft, when popping the cap or a great head when poured. This is my second batch from extract and my first was perfect so I may be spoiled.
Not dead but could have been better. My question, will a week in th fridge help??
