Is there any benifit to waiting instead of the 7-14 days?
I just brewed my first batch about 7 weeks ago. My LHBS said to leave it in the primary for a week, then bottle and condition for a week. Well after reading alot of posts here and asking alot of questions that scenario was out the window.
I kept it in the primary for 4 weeks then bottled and let sit for 2.5 weeks. and I have to say it was well worth the wait. It tasted way better than I ever expected, well carbed also.
So my advice is to be patient and you wont be sorry.
