I just finished my primary fermentation of a munich helles, and the beer is now sitting in my living room for a 3 day diacetyl rest. (Sample tastes pretty good so far) I pulled the beer a little later than I wanted, I was waiting for the krausen to fall and it fell a little late in the process.
Anyways, now I'm contemplating the next steps. After my 3 days is it better to rack into a new vessel for 4-5 weeks @ 35-40F?
I was going to rack into a carboy originally, but now I am reading about racking to a keg with the diptube cut an inch short. I also read somewhere that it might be beneficial to leave the beer on the primary yeast cake to let the beer clean up longer.
