- Christmas brews
So the dilemma is which do i brew first IPA or Dark Ruby stout now both kits have arrived at once and only 1 bucket .??????
If you’re brewing consecutively, you could try putting the second batch straight onto the yeast cake from the first. IME doing it this way (or from some yeast recovered and stored in a sanitised jar) gets fermentation going really quickly and reliably.
I’ve just bottled a strong bitter, loosely based on Fuller’s ESB but with an extra charge of late addition hops. I made a starter for the liquid yeast and it went like a rocket. Now I have to show some patience whilst it conditions.Posted 2 months agosingletrackmindMember

You can let it ferment warmer and get it through quicker as any esters or fusel alcohol will either be masked or compliment the flavour profile. 24,c should be fine, gat it done in 72hrs that way. Then put it outside for 1 day, brutal but efficient cold crash. Then bring it in again and warm it up to a low ambient for a day or two. Then hold around 10c for a week, check pg, bottle
