At what temperature do you start worrying about DMS?
I am about to corny and gel my latest pale ale and I wanted to summarize (from what I understand) so I get this right:
(1) Cool/Cold your secondary
(2) Prepare the gel mixture (1-1.5 cups H20, 1-3 tablespoons of gel mix; let sit for @ least 20 minutes, then microwave till boil)
(3) Rack beer from secondary to corny
(4) Gently pour gel mix (will be hot) into corny (will be cool/cold)
(5) blast with CO2 and let sit at least 2 days
Whut'd I miss?
