    The developer did a good job. I will be using this as well once I start adding recipes to my site.

  2. Hey there–I am just starting to learn more about home brewing. had my first session Saturday. Our beer will be ready to drink in for weeks. What determines how long a beer needs to lager before bottling/kegging/drinking?


  3. Hey, this is Larry with Brewer’s Friend. Glad you used the tool! Did you know you can share the recipe, which creates a publicly accessible URL? This makes it easy for people to copy the recipe and play with it in their own account.

    By the way, what did you end up tweaking? We are out to make this as seamless as possible for brewers and feedback is appreciated.

  4. Hey Libby,

    The short answer to your question is one month. I usually store my lagers at near freezing temperatures for closer to two months but from what I read the minimum is 4 weeks. Contact us if you have more questions.

  5. Hi Larry,

    I will have to go back to see if I shared it. I thought I did but I can check.

    I should clarify: The tweaking I did was for the post. I bolded some text – I rewrote some text. The output of the recipe was fine and if I was going to print it out and put it into a folder, it does the job. I just made some changes so I could post it on the blog.
