Okay so I brewed a ipa a week ago. Screwed up my hydrometer correction reading when I was measuring pre boil gravity, panicked, added 2# sugar. Turns out I didn't need it but now I have a big beer. Pitched rouge ale's pacman (1L starter)Fermentation was violent and very active @64 °F.
Q: When and what temp for the d-rest? When I rack to secondary? Any thoughts would be helpful, thanks

I've never needed a diacetyl rest with pacman, but if you want to bring it up a couple of degrees when you get near to FG, that would be fine.

Thanks, will do. I have a fermentation belt that's usually holds temp around 72° ( which I know is a little too warm ) will that work?
