    Check out my link. Different but same freezer. If you keep the CO2 outside you can put four

    color and a hint of coppery red. Very malty to the nose and a smooth drink, hops nicely set in

    So my normal beer sequence follows (with occasional exceptions) the 1 week primary, 2 week
    secondary, 3 week keg rule of thumb. I'm thinking now of switching up to a 1-2 week primary
    then keg for the ...
