What is the process to perform a diacetyl rest in my lager?

Our TC100 makes it easy to readily change the temperature of your beer in the fermentor.
Here is the method for using our spike TC100 for a thorough diacetyl rest in lagers.
A diacetyl rest
- When the final gravity of your beer is 2-5 SG points above your target, start raising the temp of your beer to 68 F over the course of 2 days
- Dial up your TC100 a couple degrees every 2 hours till 68 is achieved
- Pro-tip: You can simply turn off your TC100/glycol chiller if you are in a room that is near room temp and the beer should ramp up at the right rate
- Rest for 1 day at 68 F or till FG is met.
- Cold crash
