Try and keep temp below 20 degrees, below16 would be better.
Depends of what yeast you use. Some will go to sleep or be very sluggish under 16.
Kit yeasts - 18-20 is a good range.
Yes, but I was referring to his leaving it in the fermenter from week 2 to end of week 3. Would help yeast etc settle out.
Hi guys I fermented a mangrove jacks blonde on the 1 august and didn't get a chance to bottle it till the 26 of August due to moving hose ect. It smelled and tasted great. Will it still go alright
As manticle said.
"due to moving hose" - Must have been a bloody big hose. (we know you meant house, just got in first)
If the bottles are clean, but not sterile, wrap some alfoil round the lid and then bake them. Put them in the oven when it's cold and heat it to 170. Once it gets there hold it for 1 hr. bottles stay sterile indefinitely if the top is covered securely.
Info taken from How To Brew: Everything you need to know
Alternatively take your bottle and boil them in water for 20 mins
Thanks for the info. In this instance they were plastic "Coke" bottles. Which brings me to another issue .... How many times can you reuse them??
Just not if they're PET.....
Not sure on that one sorry
