Hey folks, i just brewed a standard lager but i only got the wort down to 20C. Now i have it in the carboy, in my freezer which is set to 10C - the pitching temp.

How long roughly will 5gallons of wort take to cool from 20 to 10 degrees in a 10C freezer?


Homebrew is like playing a song. Sometimes its not very good and sometimes you nail it but the more you practice the better it gets.

I would think by now it should be pretty close!
