You've got a ways to go. Wait about another week or until you get consecutive gravity readings. You then want to let it sit at 60 degrees for 48 hours. After the rest you want to transfer to a secondary to lager for 3-4 weeks at 34-38 degrees.

I find most of my mid gravity lagers are ready for the Diacetyl Rest after about 10 days fermrnting at 50. Take you hydro reading ans see where you are at if around 1.020 it is time to start warming it up if you want to do this step.

Yes. Just make sure and sanitize anything that goes near the beer.
