For those of you that have used the Wyeast ESB (1968) yeast, how have you managed the diacetyl rest that Wyeast recommend?

I will be racking to secondary tonight and I planning on dry hopping at the same time. My plan is to conduct the diacetyl rest whilst the dry hop is in progress. Can anyone see a problem with this?

Also what temperature have you being using for the diacetyl rest?

Cheers

I did 68 for 14 days and 3 days at 71. Turned out good.

I did 14 days at 65, racked and dry hopped 7 days, crash cooled at 48 for 7, then kegged. Worked out really good.

Yes. If you can do a full boil you can skip the 60 min hop addition.

If you can only boil 5 gallons safely, than do that. I wouldn't dilute unless you overshoot your OG.

+1

depends on your setup / gear. I have a big boil pot... I like to have 5.5g in my fermentor and I boil off 1g in the boil, so I shoot for 6.5g at the start of the boil. Hope that helps
