I could really use some guidance due to a fermentation cross roads I am currently at. On Sunday, February 26th I brewed a six gallon honey maibock extract recipe. I created a 2L starter using White Labs 830 yeast. After pitching the starter I placed my primary in 68 deg temps for about 12 hrs after getting some action. I slowly brought it down to a temp of approx 52 degrees. Bubbling pretty much ceased at day 10 and without consulting anyone, I brought my primary up to 68 degrees for D-rest, which lasted for 24 hrs.
This is the point I am currently at. I am at a loss on whether I botched the process and rushed to quickly to D-rest or am I alright due to the fact I added a hopefully healthy yeast starter? What should I do at this point, moving forward? Should I keep it in the primary back at 52 degrees for at least two more weeks? Should a rack to a secondary and keep it in the fifties? Thirties?
I feel like a lost puppy needing direction. Can this batch be salvaged? I figure the answer is yes, but I have no clue how to move forward positively.
