Doing an Anchor Steam clone; been in primary for about a week @~64F. Just tasted some and i am not pickng up any diacetyl and i think fermentation is done. So what next? do i cold crash? lager? or simply keg, force and serve?

Do you bother cold crashing if you are planning on brewing in the next few days or would that be if you wanted it to keep longer?How long do you use the stir plate after fermentation begins? do you run it till the bubbles stop?...I tightly seal the foil on top and off she goes for cold crashing.
Enter the vaporizer. I have made several batches using Rosemary (dry hopped about 20g.) but that's for flavor and aroma. Personally I like to keep the two (alcohol and cannabis) separate, and by the time you start to feel the effects of the THC in your beer, you've already ingested far too much to be enjoyable.
indeed, anybody chooseing to use this plant for medical or recreational purposes would do well to do something other than smoking. While study after study seems to confirm that the risks associated with tobacco are lessened or even absent with MJ it'll still tear up your lungs and if you already have a lung related issue or are an athlete etc.
I recently brewed an all wheat beer and it converted just fine. lots of enzymes in wheat malt.gonna use rice hulls for sure. thanks for the advice.
now, the runoff, that's another issue. flow, stuck, stir, flow, stuck... took forever to runoff. should have used rice hulls.
Still stuck with going with either electric RIMS or electric HERMS. Need to figure that out so I can finish planning my build.RIMS IMO is easier cleanup. I use a shop vac to clean the mash tun and backflush/recirculate everything, including counterflow wort chiller with five star liquid line cleaner followed by a hot rinse. I guess a HERMS wouldnt be much different- back flushing a coil of tubing versus a heating element in a 18"X1.5" copper pipe.
