I plan to brew a high gravity ale (imperial stout, barley wine etc) that I would like to age for up to a year or more before force carbonating in several korny kegs.
I don't want to bottle this batch, unless it's with a beergun or counter-pressure bottler after the fact. I want to serve it from the keg with as little sediment as possible.
Should I leave the ale in the secondary fermenter for a year or is it better to transfer from the secondary after fermentation has completely stopped and maybe purge the 5 gal keg beforehand or purge the oxyegen from the top of the keg after transfering from the secondary?
I just want to know if there is a way to age a high gravity ale before carbonation in the keg or at least in a larger vessel as opposed to aging in the bottle.
This is my second post, Thanks!
