Yeast and Fermentation / Scotch Ale - Strongish
« on: November 20, 2013, 02:01:12 PM »
Brewed a Scotch Ale 10 days ago. SG 1.070. Using Wyeast 1728. Its been sitting at 65-68 degrees and there is still some activity although slow.

My question is this. I know this beer needs some aging before consuming. I don't keg (yet) so should I go ahead and bottle when I have reached my FG or should I allow this to sit in the fermenter and sort of "Lager" in the garage (temp in 50's) for a couple of weeks first? Looking at the Wyeast webpage for this yeast it says it ferments from 55 - 75. Also I remember reading something somewhere about "lagering" with this yeast.

Looking for a FG of about 1.020 (70% Attenuation)
