Transfered my winter ale to the secondary fermenter yesterday. Took a sip. Not bad, but needs to condition a few more weeks.

Had two homebrews from a friend over the weekend: a small beer and a coriander ale. Both great but the coriander, in particular, was just beautiful. How long are you fermenting your winter ale, total?

I normally leave in primary fermenter for 2 weeks, transfer to a secondary for 1-2 weeks, then to a keg for conditioning and carbonation. So for ales it normally takes 4-6 weeks. Lagers take longer due to colder fermentation temps.
