I do. It's a pain because it draws too much pressure on the air lock, forcing you to remove it sometimes, and it's lost beer man!!! lol
For 20-30$ for a refractometer... I'll be getting one next week. Problem solved
Thanks for the d-rest suggestion. I'll take it out tonight. It likely it at around 75% now
ONE OTHER QUESTION
After the d-rest is it alright if I put it back in to the 52F chamber while I do another lager? Then once that one is finished drop them both to 34F? I only have one temp controlled chamber.
If it's critical that I drop to lagering temps immediately after d-rest I could probably keg the first one and toss it in my main fridge
