Title: Diacetyl rest - how long is too long?
Post by: bluedog on April 29, 2011, 11:52:22 PM
Diacetyl rest - how long is too long? I have a lager that is resting at 66F in the primary on the original yeast. I have another one using my lager fridge for primary right now. How long can I let the first one sit at room temp?

It's really just a question of how long you want it sitting on the yeast.  2-3 weeks after what I'm assuming is a primary of 1-2 weeks shouldn't hurt anything.

I've gone a week at 60 or so and it wasn't a problem.
