Oops! Typed first version of this before first cup of coffee! I brewed an Octoberfest lager last Thursday and 12 hours later had very vigorous fermentation at
59 49 degrees using White Labs Octoberfest/Marzen liquid yeast. It went very strong for 6 days and then started to slow down. I then bumped the temperature up to 69 59 degrees for diacetyl rest and yeast activity became vigorous again. Should I take the temperature even higher for diacetyl rest? Once that is finished, should I lager it for several weeks in the primary or rack it over to my keg for lagering at 35 degrees? Appreciate your comments!
