By condition, I mean, the flavors blend and generally taste much better.
It's the 'the last pint tastes better than the first' phenomenom.
I'm sure you've heard that you can force carbonate at a much higher level than you'd server at, then after a few days lower it, and serve. I started off doing that, but I've stopped because the longer you wait the better it tastes.
Thanks! That sounds like exactly the plan I want.
Just to be clear, what do you think of my standard brewing timeline:
Primary Fermenter - 1 week
Secondary Fermenter - 1-2 weeks
40* and carbing in keg - 1-2 weeks
I'm aware that some beers will take longer, but this is what I'm expecting for any wheat beers or brown ales to be drinkable. My IPA's will take longer I'm sure.
