Notes
Pitch at 17°C and ferment at 19°C. This yeast (also wyeast 1968) is a fast fermenter and a big heat producer. One should not let it get above 20°C before 72 hours (afterwards it's fine).

Transfer to a secondary fermenter after 1-2 weeks if fermentation is complete and that's the sort of thing you do.

Bottle after 2-4 weeks from brewday (dry-hopping 3-5 days before), depending on how fast/healthy your fermentation was, and whether the yeast has settled.
