Racking Canadian IPA
 
Just started a Morgans Canadian IPA. My OG was .42@19c. I have never racked off a batch before and was wondering the pros. I assume the cons would be infection and variation of flavors of some kind??
My second question is that the directions stated to have the yeast @a temp 22c - 30c. Would it be beneficial if I kept my temp lower than recommendations?
I would appreciate any input or previous experiences.
Thanks

30 is very high, sounds like a recipe for a nasty brew. ale yeasts are generally best kept in the 17-21 range. what are you going to rack it off to exactly? pint glasses? why not let it ferment to completion and then bottle or keg it

I will keep fermet temp as low as possible. Around 20c. Once the initial foam is gone from the top. Around 3-4 days. I am going to rack into another fermenter till fermentation is complete or maybe longer.. Then I'll bottle using bulk priming techniques.

Bzzzzzz! Wrong answer!

You do NOT remove beer from primary until primary is done. This takes at least 7 days!

If you rack at day 3, you can expect crappier beer, and possibly a stuck fermentation since you removed all the yeast.

Go read all the beginner stickies and re-think your process.

How can it be crappier? The instructions say to rack after 3-4 days
