Have just started homebrewing with a mate this year. We are doing very small batches (6 litre tap-a-draft kegs) every week using the all grain BIAB method.
10 batches in and things need a little tweaking.
One thing I am finding hard to get information on is temperature schedules for post fermentation. After fermentation is complete I leave the primary in the fermentation fridge for another week. It then shares the fridge with the next batch. This generally means batch A is sitting at around 16 degrees whilst batch B is generating heat and the fridge kicks in trying to keep it at 18. After that second week I crash it to around 2 degrees and leave it sit at that for 12 days before force carbing and 2 days later consumption.
This abbreviated small batch brew cycle is intentional as we are trying to get as much brewing experience under our belts in as short a period possible (4 weeks from brewday to drinking)
I think though I need to change the temps post fermentation to something more like 22~25 degrees, and maybe hold that for 2 weeks instead of one. To do this I'm looking at another fridge and controller.
Could anyone point me towards any online resources around this? I have tried searching but I don't really know how to phrase the question.
