Cool down the wort to 15°C and pitch the yeast.
Ferment at 15°C for 2 days then rise to 20°C. When it reaches 20°C add the fruit juice. Once the fermentation is done (FG reached and off-flavors removed – about 7 days), drop the temperature to 8°C and rest for 1 day, and then harvest the yeast. Drop the temperature to 2°C and rest for 7 days.
Step 4: Cold Aging and Packaging Cold age the beer at -1°C for 5 days, remove the residual yeast, and carbonate until 2.5 volumes of CO2. The beer is ready to package and drink. Enjoy! *For refermentation in the bottle, add brewing sugar and SafAle F-2.
