What's the general consensus on leaving a heat source turned on after fermentation has complete?
I'm doing an Imperial IPA which should finish fermenting in 4-5 days going by previous experience with the yeast. I'm then going to leave it in the primary for 10-14 days for conditioning and possible dry hopping towards the end.
Is it best to leave my brewing mat turned on for the entire period or to turn it off once fermentation has completed?
I'm inclined to say yes... consistent temperature is always a good thing when dealing with yeast. Am I correct?
