I would do it in the 150 - 154 degree range for about 20 minutes in about 2 1/2 gallons of water. Then let them drain in a colander over the pot, then if you want you can put them in another pot with 165 degree water, dip them in there to rinse them, let them drain, then dump that water into the main pot. Or just rinse them while they are over the pot in the colander with the 165 degree water.

I am going to post this in two posts. half way through my pour in my bubba keg (52 oz) I ran out of centennial and finished up the rest by topping off with this and WOW. Half and half of this with cream of three crops is pretty darn good. My favorite between the two is centennial but the combo is a close 2nd.

So, I got 50 pages in, but I haven't seen an answer to the question I have.

The first post states that it can be done with 4 days in primary and 5 days secondary, but I didn't see anyone commenting on having used that same aggressive schedule when they made it.

I brewed this on Sunday (3/31), and having had too many parties lately, my rolling stock of homebrew has been obliterated, so I'd like to get this on tap ASAP. The rest of my keezer build is coming in on Monday 4/8.

I made a few mistakes when I brewed this (my first AG batch), including doubling the hops (was looking at the 10g batch) and only hitting a mash temp of 141 (I ended up deciding to mash for 2.5 hours as a result). My OG came out to only 1.031. I think I've rectified the cause of these problems, but wanted to mention in case it was relevant. I also used S-05 yeast.

So, my questions are:

Assuming fermentation is completed as measured with hydrometer,

1.) Is transferring to secondary necessary? I know there are a lot of opinions out there on using secondaries in general, but looking for input on how it applies to this situation. I don't have gelatin, so I wouldn't be using any.

2.) Is 9 days total too short from kettle to keg?

I'm thinking that, whether I do a secondary or not, I will place in Keezer on 4/9 for 48 hours to drop some yeast out of suspension, and then transfer to keg on 4/11 and burst carbonate.

Thanks for any advice!

Personally, I rarely use a secondary. I usually forget the Irish Moss in my boil, I've never used gelatin, I usually cold crash, but sometimes forget...point is, the beer usually clears up fine regardless. In this instance, going for quick turnaround, I would definitely cold crash.

9 days is totally doable. Pitch the correct amount of yeast, and keep temps in line, and there is no reason it can't be ready to keg in that amount of time...maybe less.

I will admit that sometimes I get lazy and rather than bother with checking final gravity, I'll just let my brews sit in primary 3-4 weeks and then keg. With trying for speed I would DEFINITELY be checking FG...probably starting around day 6 or 7...
