Not really, the priming sugar won't add any residual sweetness, and its probably not a good
idea to try to make an adjustment at this point. Just let it ride and see how it turns out,
then make your r...

i dont like how light it tastes. is there a way to impart a little residual sweetness by
bottling with something other than corn sugar? like honey or something?

It was fermented at ale temps so it probably doesn't need the diacetyl rest. I don't think this
beer needed to be put into a secondary at all, so it can be bottled as soon as the gravity has

Did you do a diacetyl rest? you may want to leave it at room temp for a few days to avoid
having the beer taste like buttered popcorn. I'm not sure if that's possible in a secondary,
anybody know?And ...

Steady bubblage every 5-7 seconds. At 56f now. It is wrapped up in a couple of blankets. We

consider using a kolsch ale yeast and fermenting at the very low end of ale temp range,
something like 55-60 degrees. Using lager yeast properly would require more temperature control
than you have av...
