Any thoughts on what ferment profile to use for this fermenter when you are fermenting under pressure?

Fermentation under pressure is independent of the profile used. Your profile will capture what temperature steps you need and days to hold them. For me, what does change are the losses expected from fermentation (no blow-off = higher yield).

I don't ferment under pressure for the whole time, just the first three or four days (all of primary). After that, I rise to diacetyl rest and allow CO2 to slowly escape, which scrubs sulfur. Others stay under pressure the whole time, but I find that lagers mature faster with my method.
