Oh, it definitely continues to rise after pouring the beer...
Great tip on leaving the beer in the fridge for a week also. When conditioning, I leave them in the same closet I leave my fermenters in; however, I assumed that once they were cold in the fridge that they were ready.
I am definitely a noob.
