I just boiled my sugar water and started syphoning the beer onto it in my bottling bucket. No caps. This is a wheat beer extract from NB but I cold crashed it for the past 2 days to see if I could notice it being clearer than my first batch of this same beer. I figured when I bottled any yeast would not be active and it would take longer to carb because of that.
Will this be alright to sit for 12 hours until I get caps?
Should I leave it at room temp and let it warm or put it back in the fridge until I can finish bottling?
Will I need to add more priming sugar?
I didn't stir my first batch but had a nice syphon whirlpool going. No inconsistencies. I'm expecting them with this batch though. At least it was only 2.5 gal cause the other half was secondaried on strawberries. Will be bottling that this weekend I believe.
So its been about 2 weeks since I bottled and I cracked the first one tonight. Carbed up good. A lot clearer than my first beer of the same kind. Still gonna let it sit longer. Head retention is not great and wasn't with my first batch either.
