hey ! I ordered this kit ,and have it going in the secondary right now. the problem I am having is conflicting information as to how long it takes to mature. after taking 3.5 weeks in the primary , it had a leveled out F.G. of 1.016 and is clear as can be . to my eyes, she looks about done. but the catalog from NB says 6-8weeks, and the website says 4 months. how long did you give yours? if anything, I think I will give it a good 2.5 weeks in the secondary, then bottle it. any suggestions I am open to.

I have this one (all grain) on my list to brew someday. I'm curious how it turns out.

My rule of thumb is if the gravity is level for a week, I call it done. Then I'll give it a week in secondary to crash cool and bottle it up. The 6-8 weeks/4 months estimate probably refers to how long it should age before it's at its prime.

ahhh thats kinda how I figure it too- level gravity for a week, and the only reason to keep it in the secondary is to clarify the beer a little before bottling/kegging. thanks for the helpful info gnome!
