Ferment at 68 for 7 days, rack to secondary. Ferment until target gravity has been reached (1.012-1.013 ideally) and the beer has cleared (3 weeks prox.)

Add Gelatin and cold crash in fridge for 3 days prior to bottling. Prime and bottle.

Carbonate at 70 to 72 for 2 to 3 weeks. Chill for 3 days, enjoy!
