Tesco Summer Fruit...............

Post by WalesAles » Thu Jul 11, 2019 7:52 pm

20Lts Tesco basic Apple Juice
3 mugs tea, 4bags each.
3tsp Yeast, 3tsp Nutri
OG 1040
Batch prime 150gr sugar.
1.5Lts Tesco Summer Fruit Cordial added at priming stage.
FG 1000
Bottled 3/7/19
Tasted today, BLM! =D>
What a lovely pint. 3hrs in the fridge, poured nice, good fizz (in the correct glass).
I can`t believe this has come so good so quickly.
All this talk of 2wks warm, 2wks cold, makes you question all the good knowledge
on JBK or if people haven`t had an early pint?

Two weeks warm and two weeks cold is just a rough rule of thumb that some people use as a general guide. It isn't particularly accurate, partly because a calendar isn't the best replacement for monitoring actual progress and partly because one size doesn't necessarily fit all.

So yes, in practice, some brews can indeed be ready sooner, whilst others might take (or benefit from) longer - either to mature or to clear. It depends on the brew and also on things like 'how' cold, as well as how fussy the drinker is.
