Next brewday

Postby triple-oh_six » Wed May 14, 2008 9:24 pm

I told everyone last meeting that I would be brewing on the 18th.
Plans changed.

I control fermentation temp by keeping my carboys in a cotainer with water and towels wrapped around them.
As long as the temp. in my beer room is around 72 - 75 F my fermenters stay at around 65 - 68.

I'll be in Vegas for a week and plan on leaving the AC almost off along with the cieling fans, so my house will not be coducive to making a good home for yeast.

Anyway I'm shooting to brew an AG Wheat on the 8th for Gulf Brew, that gives this beer about 6 weeks. Will this be a sufficient amount of time? Don't wheat beers age fairly quick?

Also, I'll let everybody know when I brew this in case anyone wants to come by.

Prost,
tripple

Six weeks should be more than enough time for a wheat beer.

most of my beers have been totally consumed within six weeks, so yeah, any normal ale should be ready to drink in three to four weeks from brewing. exceptions would be double dry-hopped, extreme oak and some of the Belgians (Lambics can require up to six years of aging.)
