Welcome to Part 2 of DIY - Russian River Blind Pig IPA!
It's been 7 days and our Blind Pig IPA has been fermenting in temps ranging from 68 to 72 degrees. I have been trying my best to control the temps but this weather has been ridiculous. And now it's time for the secondary fermentation. You can begin the secondary fermentation at anytime between 7 to 10 days. I chose to do it at 7 days hoping the hops would have more time to infuse into the beer.
If you remember from Part 1, the recipe includes the following for the secondary fermentation:
.5 oz Cascade - Dry hops are added to the secondary fermentation
1 oz Willamette - Dry hops added to the secondary fermentation
1 oz American Oak Chips - Add to secondary fermentation for 7 - 10 days
