Default Bottle conditioning 1 gallon

How long should my 2 hearted clone condition in the bottle for a 1 gallon batch?

Got a zombie dust clone on deck & an oatmeal stout in the primary.

It depends on the OG. You should allow at least one week for every 10 points in cold conditions. For instance, if the OG was 1.050 you should allow at least five weeks. If you are conditioning at room temperatures then allow another two or three weeks.

Let it go a few weeks at 70f. A very loose rule of thumb is 3-2-1

3 weeks fermenting, 2 weeks bottle conditioniong at 70F, 1 week cold conditioning in the fridge.

Of course these times can vary with OG/FG and temp, but it's a good baseline to consider.
