Good evening all, happy day one fellow dry julyers and all that.

I have put down an oatmeal stout (first time stout maker) and have temp control at last. My question that I come to you with tonight is:

I have my stout fermenting away at 18 deg c. I just want to know at the end of fermentation do I need to do a D rest and crash cool or do I save all of that for lighter beverages?



Many thanks :beer:

I tend to let my stouts just rest in the FV for a few days longer and bottle or keg out of primary.

Too easy. This is how I have left most brews thus far anyways. I have left in fermenter for 2-3weeks and then bottled. I guess with a darky there is less need for a clear beer at the end. I have done a reasonable vorlof (I know spelling is shite) and racked it pretty carfully from my pot into fermenter and only had a bittering edition of hops so not expecting too much in the way of sediment/trub.
