Well, I think I saw a post that said 2 weeks if kept cool and dry. Certainly my grain is dry in
plastic bags, and half is in fridge and the rest in cool basement (65 degree, approx.).I had it

I didn't rack yet, so no problem. I will leave at 65 for 10 days. I will then move to secondary
for another 4 days to clear it up a bit.I don't understand why you make it colder at the end.
If there w...

If I fermented in primary for 1 week and moved to secondary for another week (at 70 or so

Alright, 30 psi for 36 hours and then bringing it down to 10-12psi worked like a charm. I think
the real problem was not giving it some time to adjust when dropped to the serving

Yeah, I am carbonating in a fridge. I guess the only reason to use a higher pressure is for
speed. It sounds like a little more time and the change from higher to serving pressure for a
day or so will...

I started force carbonating a keg of ale 3 days ago and seem to be having some issues. I had it
at 25 psi for 3 days and was planning to leave it at 16-17 for another 3-4 days and then down

Ah, ok. I didn't know you boiled it for 15 minutes. I clean and sanitize each time, but then
