I'll be attempting my second lager. First one went in the drain.
I'm brewing this and adding clarity ferm, and hope my GF can drink it. Since she's a celiak, she's used to Sol/Corona type of beers, an IPA i made her had "too much taste". For my own sake I also want it to be a single hop with a new (for me) hop.
11,02 lb Pilsnermalt Best Malz (1,5 SRM) Grain 1 98,2 %
0,21 lb Carahell (25,0 SRM) Grain 2 1,8 %

0,53 oz Palisade [7,50 %] - Boil 30,0 min Hop 4 9,7 IBUs
0,53 oz Palisade [7,50 %] - Boil 15,0 min Hop 5 6,2 IBUs
0,29 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10,0 mins) Fining 6 -
3,0 pkg Saflager Lager (DCL/Fermentis #W-34/70) [50,28 ml]
I'm unsure of the mash schedule for this, this is my main concern which I need some help with. I can step mash and steps take from 15-30 minutes (for example 150-170 takes approx 15 minutes).
Also, I have some Munich 1&2, and caramunich 2&3 I could add to this, if it would make a positive difference. I have 7 other grains too, but I think the munich is more in style than the others, if anything should be added.
Since this is my first "real" attempt for a lager, I'll save the 830 I also have on hand, so the 34/70 is the yeast I'll use. Full control of ferm temps.
