At this point being happy with carbonation is it best to continue to store the beer at 70 deg or to store at cooler temp while I wait for the red ale's watery taste to improve? Also how long should I let the natural carbed beer chill in fridge before consuming? Thx you for any help
I can only tell you what I've noticed and do. I let mine condition for 3 weeks then chill a 6er for a week, usually at this point they're pretty good, but most if not all seem to benefit from an additional week or so at 70 degrees.
