Something I read here, that I can't find now, indicated this. Though just because I read it, doesn't mean it's true!
Wondering if the extra week in primary (so 3 or 4 total) advances the beer further than that same week conditioning in bottles (no secondary). Is the beer ready faster with a longer primary/shorter bottle time, or is it pretty much the same. Just trying to plan out my bottling schedule for the busy month of September.
Talking specifically about Nottingham yeast with a fairly small beer - 5.5 gallon.
