I've just kicked off my 3rd homebrew. I've learnt a couple of things from previous brews (be careful when siphoning, use bottled water, sterilise everything properly, etc) so I'm hoping that this will be a really good one. I really just wanted to run a few things but you guys to see what you thought.
Just kicked this off in the brewing bucket in the kitchen which should keep the temperature pretty constant. I've left previous attempts for 2 - 3 weeks until the bubbles stop coming through but was wondering whether to go for 3 - 4 weeks this time?
Secondary fermentation (in a keg):
So after primary, I put the beer in to the secondary barrel. Last time I also added some fruit for extra flavour at this stage along with the priming sugar. Does that make sense you? I normally don't bother with bottling but might do a couple this time. Last time I left it in the keg for about a week before drinking which worked pretty well. I haven't bothered with a carbonator before but might give one of those a go this time as well.
So I suppose what I'm looking for is a sanity check. Does this sound right to you guys? Any other tips, tricks or advise are more than welcome!
