As temperatures crawl up here in Montreal lager fermenting looks off unless I buy another fridge that can fit a carboy.
I noticed that an old starter I never used carried on fermenting in the fridge. Bit slower than normal but not too bad I been monitoring the whiff of the gas to see how clean it smells. Nothing off.
So I am thinking to make a lazy lager. I'll bottle immediately from the can into 2L coke bottles and ferment in the fridge with the starter that has acclimatized to the cold Release pressure manually by opening lids a bit every few days. Maybe carb in up outside fridge and straight back in again to err lager.
Apart from taking longer to brew and having more yeast in any reason why this is dumb? Could I just add gelatin to hold the yeast on bottom? Anyone tried this or summut similar?
