Default When to dump the trub?

Hey all,

I am very curious. About 5.5 days ago I pitched safe-Ale s-04 into a 1.055 gravity of a vanilla caramel cream ale. I am curious, when should you dump the trub or open the bottom port of your conical to remove the excess dead yeast?

Thanks,

Kyle

I dump 24 hrs after pitching to remove sediment and again 5-7 days to remove yeast. Depending on your valve diameter you may open it now only to find nothing comes out. Poking at it will only end up with a bunch of spilled beer and a little yeast coming out. I have had the trub form a sludge (if I've waited to long) that I never could fully dump.

I have a 3" ball valve. I guess come Saturday, I'll dump the trub and drop the temp.
