I am brewing a bohemian pilsner in a conical fermenter. It's the first time I have used the lager profile (as opposed to ale). It has now gone into stage 4 lasting 30 days. I am assuming that it is now conditioning the brew since fermentation is now finished? I am unsure how to proceed? Is any further conditioning (secondary fermentation) necessary ?
I am using an Inkbird for the first time with a heat mat. Do I
1. Put the probe between the mat and my plastic fermenter
2. Fix in to the outside of the fermenter with tape.
3. Drill another hole in the lid and put it in the wort and seal with tape
