Re: Bottle Conditioning

My method is to leave anything i bottle at room temperature for one week. After one week i move my bottles to somewhere dark and cooler.This is where ever i have space, be it a kitchen cupboard or a small lean-to shed in the back yard.

Re: Room Temp when Priming Pressure Barrel.

Hello Doreblade.That is a lovely looking pint.
The next time you prime in a pressure barrel to help with your concern if its carbonating ok or not, mark the level of the beer with a felt or pencil on the barrel.
I find after 2 or 3 days the level falls below the mark then i sleep easy at night :idea:
