Title: California common using 2112
Post by: bucknut on May 31, 2013, 12:55:39 AM
Hey guys, just did my first California common and I used 2 smack packs of 2112 for a 2.5 gal batch and It started fermentation just under 10 hrs at 62 degrees. I was wondering on how to proceed, secondary or leave in primary? I'd like to just let it go in the primary for 21 days at 62 degrees, then I plan on conditioning at room temp for 2 to 3 weeks then lager it in the fridge for say another 2 to 3 weeks before drinking. Any suggestions?

For my Cali Common I will leave it in the primary for 2 or 3 weeks, then transfer to keg to lager for 2 to 4 weeks.

Leave in primary. Then bottle. Then chill. Then drink.

Carb and condition at 70 for 2-3 weeks, then fridge.
