Local to Raleigh, we have a few competitions coming up in the fall. Would like to do my best and but I find that my beers peak at 3-5 weeks. I could brew and keep in the bucket or carboy then bottle everything 3-5 weeks out. However, I think hop flavor will lesson for my IPA sitting in secondary too long.
If it helps, I brewing an English Mild, Belgian Witbier, and an IPA. I think that would be the best order for brewing and bottling.
Advice and tips are always appreciated.
