Don't rush this beer! Give it at least 2 weeks in primary and 2 months in secondary. Be careful of temp. increases in primary... there's a lot of fermentables here and it'll take off if you're not careful. Add 1 pkg. Danstar Nottingham dry yeast to the bottling bucket along with your priming sugar. The fermentation yeast is going to be pretty much useless by the time you bottle. Age well. I have bottles of this recipe that are 6 years old. In a recent tasting, a 4 year old bottle was great!
