Oxygen is an issue, and you don't want to splash or add oxygen. But if using deoxygenated water- how is that different if I had it today than a week ago? I guess I just don't see the difference. Adding it is adding it.

InBev does it all the time, as do other mega breweries.

I can see the point now. I just could not see doing it. Thanks for the info.

So Gravity on Sunday pm was 1.012, gravity Tuesday pm, 1.012. Do you think it's time to bottle?

Bottled. And now the waiting game continues... How long in the bottles do you reckon?

Should be good in 2 weeks. I dont usually bottle, but from the few batches I have, everything has been carbed by then. It may take a little longer to fully develop flavor and not taste green. Google the "5 bottle rule". This way, next time you will know when the beer will taste it's best. Cheers!

Sounds good. Here's hoping for no bottle bombs. Covered in blankets and towels just incase. Cheers for all advice all

So I popped a bottle open today. Somewhat more like a Belgian Trappist than the hoppy IPA I was going for but certainly drinkable when chilled. Will see how it matures over the next few weeks
