Default How long do you ?

1. How long do "YOU" Leave your beer in the Primery ?

2. How long do "You" Leave your beer in your secondary ?

3. How long do "You" Leave your berr in (bottle) ?

I Know OG and FG have a factor , I also know thet lager or ale style yeast play factor , So include the info to help me decide a good range . . . .

Example: I leave my beer with a OG of .060 with ale yeast in my primary for 10 days .

Example: I leve my beer in my sacondary with a OG of .060 for 10 days .

Example: I leave my beer in bottles for 2 or 7 weeks .

So far MY Beers I have been letting them sitt in the primary for 7days and then the secondary for 7days then I bottle and drink after 2weeeks ..

1) A month
2) I don't secondary
3) I keg. So I don't bottle. But when I did, I left my beer in the bottle until I had finished it? Not quite sure what you mean by this question...are you talking about carb time? or just how long you leave it in the bottle?

1) ~3 weeks
2) ~1 week if I need to free up my primary or want to add fun stuff in
3) Min of 3 weeks but I tend to get bored and try a couple throughout the conditioning process
