So I brewed a Russian Imperial Stout last weekend. Had a bit extra after the carboy was filled, so I made a little side car fermenter in a growler bottle. As an experiment, I'd like to rack this one over before it's fully done fermenting to let the residual sugars carbonate in a swing top growler I have. When would be the best/safest time to do this? I'm using WLP028 Edinburgh Scottish Ale Yeast if that matters. To be clear, I know this can be a dangerous endeavor, so I do plan on wrapping it in a bag, putting in in a box, covering it with a crate, and lowering it down a manhole (kidding), while it conditions. It's currently been about 5 days since I brewed. O.G. was 1.11 and the final target is 1.026.
