Beer of the Week Scottish Heavy
« on: October 24, 2012, 09:19:49 PM »
Just out of curiosity how long would you leave a beer like this go in the secondary? It's pretty low gravity. Do you think you could pull this off in 3-4 weeks?

last time I made this style with a similar recipe I used 3 weeks in primary and bottled/kegged.  Few weeks at room temp and a few weeks in the fridge and scored 47/50, still the highest I've ever gotten.

YMMV, but IMO this little beer is good quite at a young age, will improve over the first few months, and if handled well will last a surprisingly long period of time.  Reminds me I need to make another.
 
good luck--
