So with the influx of threads about how recipe kit instructions aren't always very accurate, I'm now second guessing what mine has told me. Wanted to run it by you guys and see what you think.
I am brewing the William's Brewing Company English IPA. It tells me that I should let if ferment for 12 days and then check the gravity. If it is below a certain point (don't have it in front of me but I want to say 1.019?) then it should be bottled right away. It then says, once bottled, I should let it sit in a warm place (65 to 75 degrees) for 9 days, and then in a cooler place (55 to 65) for another two weeks. Does this sound right to you guys? From what I've read on here it looks like people are saying the fermenting time should be longer. Will my English IPA benefit from a long secondary fermentation? Thanks!
