You guys (oops...and girls) know far too much to take in this early in my addiction!
I cannot make my mind up whether to ferment for a looooong time or try just 2 weeks and then get it in a keg (it is a cheap lager kit - a present given as part of a kit) or to wait longer like most of you seem to suggest.
I am tempted to do the shorter so that I can do my next brew longer and see for myself what the difference is.
What do you think? Am I too impatient and approaching regret?
I've been having a blast reading on here and looking at other folks brew set-ups - I need to start taking notes on all that's here.
I too started with a brew kit and I let mine ride. I began the process Christmas Day and didn't bottle for 3-weeks. Mine has been sitting in bottles since the 15th and is going for a cool down next week...My test sample out of the keg after 2 weeks and out of a bottle a couple of days ago was very, very encouraging....Perhaps add a week to the recommended time?
