    So how long do you guys d-rest for? And then how long do you lager before you start drinking
    it?

  • Posted in thread: Why rack lager at 70% attenuation? on 05-26-2015 at 07:27 PM
    The usual process is to begin the D-rest (if you even need to do one) when the brew is about
    75-80% of the way to FG. .Since I'm not sure I know enough about diacetl to detect it, I'll

    Why do we rack lagers at ~70% attenuation? If I rack into my keg to lager there, wouldn't this
    mean I'd have more sediment? Should I wait until it's closer to completion and then rack? Any
    problem wit...

    Thanks Yooper. Was considering buying a tester kit. Do you think that's necessary?

    Back in June, I bought a couple 6 week Cellar Craft premium kits. They were expensive and they
    take a long time to age so I'm being a bit of a worrier about them. I decided to part with the
    instructio...

    Thanks Yooper. Should I do this immediately or can I sit in it for another month before I
