I'm assuming that this should be done before racking when "primary fermentation" is complete? I suppose I have another question then too. Is there any way to estimate what the FG should be based on initial gravity and style? Or does it completely depend on hydrometer readings and time? When I do a diacetyl rest how warm should I go? Temp range is 64-74F.
I pitched a little high (78F) but got the temp down to about 65F before there was any activity at all. My initial gravity reading was around 1.07. The recipe is for a "Wet Mountain IPA" clone.
This is my first batch and the advice here has been very valuable, thank you.
