Notes

Fermentation

Add to fermentation vessel then pitch yeast at room temperature and wait 7 - 14 days for fermentation to finish.

Kegging/Bottling

For the gelatin finings, the rate given by Spike Brewing Company is 1 gram per gallon into 1 ounce of purified water per gallon (Example: for a 5 gallon batch of beer, use 5 grams in 5 ounces of purest available water).

Once gelatin has been added to the bottom of the keg, push beer onto finings. Cold crash and force carbonate, serve on 2.5 volumes of CO2 at 10 PSI.
