Absolutely no idea. At this point (tertiary fermenter) you are just aging the beer, so you can leave it in there for a week, a month, a year, or a decade.

I would just taste it every now and then, and when it tastes really f**king good, bottle it.

If I lived closer to you, I'd offer to come by and sample it, because it sounds goooooooood.

I'm really low on bottles so letting it age in the carboy isn't a bad thing...

I'll let you know how this thing comes out...hopefully by Christmas! If it makes me proud, I'll send you one for x-mas.

Is that one of the brews you forgot to give me a couple of weeks ago?

Anywho...how about my Kilkenny Irish Ale? Any critique yet?

What are your thoughts on juicing real fruit and adding it to the wort? I have a fruit juicer, and I think it would just release a lot more of the flavor with less pulp. Perhaps I'll try it with a blueberry wheat. That does sound tempting.

I didn't end up with much pulp, but I used a grain bag to hold the cherries. Came out a bit clearer than I'd expected.

HB99--I just put your ales in the fridge yesterday. I've been on call the past two days so Monday will have to be my soonest beer. Can't wait to enjoy them!
