Carbonation and Storage

Carbonation Type: Corn SugarVolumes of CO2: 2.4
Pressure/Weight: 4.2 ozCarbonation Used: -Coopers carbonation drops
Keg/Bottling Temperature: 70.0 FAge for: 28.0 days
Storage Temperature: 70.0 F 


Started my yeast 4 days prior to brew , pitching yeast culture volume=150ml. Watch out, the high alcohol and alpha acid content might stall carbonation. I used Coopers carbination drops at bottle and it took a longer time to carbonate than I expected. I recomend at least 4 weeks at a cooler temp than 75.0F
