Is it beneficial to raise my ferm temp after the primary fermentation is over with? I have been just keeping my temp controlled until fermentation is complete and then cold crashing and kegging. Some places say that a little warmer at the end may clean the beer up a bit more.
Yes, it helps finish a wee bit more than without. I ferment in the lower 60s and then after about 4-5 days, let it go back up to room temp high 60s for the remainder of two weeks total.
