hey all... i brewed a cali common recently ...
used wyeast activator cali lager yeast #2122 ...
finally got my starter going after a non existant expansion of the activator pack...
took 3 days to get the gravity of the starter from 1.050 to recommended 1.018...
all great at pitch on the 13th ... it is now the 22nd...I still have approx 45 seconds to 1 min. between airlock co2 expulsions... I have had the primary in the temp range of 62-66.
1) Never brewing with this strain, does this activity i am having described above consistant with the yeast and type of brew I have going?
2) Do I rack to the secondary when i see no more activity in the airlock what so ever?
3) A thing i read about the Diacteyl (SP?) Rest... for fear of this in the brew... do i still wait 3-5 days after no activity in the airlock and then rack to secondary?

thanks again for all your help

Yoop chyme in please since you have helped throughout this?
