I pitched two packets, and pitched cold.
I did a rest just before racking to secondary for 24 hours but it had pretty much finished and I didn't taste any diacetyl type flavors thoughout my testing so I wasn't too worried.
I pitched one packet and pitched warm(68 F)
But it finished spot on. OG- 1.070 FG- 1.019 Estimated FG was 1.017. Within a week it dropped to 1.030 and then took another 2 weeks to drop to 1.019.
Sounds like yours should finish out much faster with the 2 packets and your pitching temps.
