I am trying my 1st lager brew, I have just started back to brewing after 30 years and my ale beer so far are coming out great!
I am alittle confused after reading here and other books as to the length of time in the primary fermenter and temps after it kicks in.
Then temps in secondary and length of time there too.
My reciepe is a Bock:
9lbs Briess Pilsen malt ext.
2lbs Munich malt 10L
1lb Crystal malt 145L
1/8 lb Roasted Barley
I used 2 oz of loose Perle
1oz of Mt. Hood Loose
yeast was White Labs German Lager liquid.
It took 2 days at 68 f to get started
then I put it in the garage at 48 f
it's been doing good now for 5 days at 48 f
Do I wait until it really slows down like my ales the rack to secondary?
