I have a Kolsch in primary. Fermenting around 62 degrees. It will be ready to rack to secondary in about 10 days.
I am getting sent to Israel in a couple days(for two months), so a brewing friend has agreed to rack it to secondary for me.
I had intended to put 4 oz of orange zest into secondary and let it sit for two weeks, then rack to tertiary for a month at lager temps.
What would the effects of leaving it in seconday with the orange peel for 6 weeks be? Or...should I have him rack it to secondary, put the peel in on my return and continue the schedule.
