I'll try to tip toe into this as not to offend anyone....
I've got a German Wheat that sat in the primary for 10 days and is now on day 4 in the secondary. Had I counted the days before I moved it, I'd have probably just left it alone and not even worried about a secondary, but I didn't, so here's the question.
I leave for Christmas to see family on the 20th, and was hoping to be able to bring a few of the wheats to share between then and the end of my stay on the 28th. Should I bottle the brew now and maximize bottle time, or leave in the secondary and bottle in a few days?
Option 1: 10 day primary, 5 day secondary, about 3+ weeks in the bottle.
Option 2: 10 day primary, __?__ days in secondary, shorter bottle time.
Where's the greatest benefit to drink ability; additional 5 days in secondary or bottle?
