Notes

Ferment at 50°F (10°C) until final gravity is reached; increase the temperature by a few degrees at the latter stages of fermentation to aid in diacetyl cleanup. Once the beer completes fermentation, but before packaging, you may want to cold crash it to 35°F (2°C) for 48 hours to improve clarity. Bottle or keg the beer and carbonate to approximately 2.5 volumes. Store carbonated beer at near-freezing temperatures for at least 4 weeks before drinking.
