I've just started my very first brew. I decided to start with an I.P.A as that is my drink of choice.
I purchased the following kit:
I decides not to start from scratch with a mash as I want to get the hang of things first.
The instructions received in my kit stated that I should ferment in the first container for 5 days (of which I'm currently at day 4) and then transfer to a pressure keg for 2 days before drinking or bottling.
Having read up on brewing for a bit this seems like a really short time. Is that correct? Or is it because I'm using a kit that this is actually the case and the timescales are correct?
Any help would be appreciated as I'm a bit confused now. I have a hydrometer so can take readings.
Thanks in advance,
