Lager at 64F

Post by Reignman »

I made a Steam Beer on July 31st using Mangrove Jack M54 Lager yeast. Currently is sits at 64F. Do I need a D rest with it fermenting at 64F? I have never used this yeast before and don't know how fast it works, especially at that temp.

I've not used that particular yeast, but when I brew "warm lagers" I don't bother with a diacetyl rest. My warm largers are generally brewed between 15 and 18C.

Okay, It has slowed down a lot, but still fermenting away around 64 F to 65 F. I will update in 10 days or so. I check the fridge daily and the only thing that is different is there is no " lager " smell compared to fermenting at 10 C.
