Default Diacetyl Rest

I am fermenting a lager at 50 degrees right now. When is the diacetyl rest best performed. I think answer is right at the end of fermentation around the end of the 3rd week

Actually, most will say it's when you're about 3/4 of the way to your estimated FG. That could be quicker than 3 weeks.
