i have a question: I am going out of town soon, but i don't want to have to wait until I get back to start my next brew. if i brew next week, and get her into primary, once the initial vigorous "blowoff hose" fermentation has subsided, and a regular airlock is affixed, can i go off and leave it for about a week? by the time I leave, it will have had 2 wks in primary, so it should just be coolly resting and minding its own business, right? i should not have anything to worry about, correct? it's going to be a porter. also, any cool places to check out in chicago for beer are welcomed!
