new to lagers
 
So I have some pretty basic lager questions, but rather than post 20 of them here can someone point me to a book or website dedicated to teaching about lagers? I did a search here and came up with a few things, but not a whole lot. Thanks.

Have you started with Palmer's section in How to Brew on breing lager?

It starts here, but he talks about lager yeast in chapter 6 as well.

+1 On How To Brew. It's good basic information broken down in an understandable way. After you've read that, if you want to delve deeper (there is a lot more to learn), get the book New Brewing Lager Beer by Greg Noonan... one of the best books on lager brewing (beer in general, really) available to the homebrewer. How To Brew's lager information will tell you what to do, New Brewing Lager Beer will help you better understand why.

Also Basic Brewing Radio did some good podcasts with Chris Colby of BYO on lagering.

Did you check out the Chris Colby one on Vienna Lagers? I based my recipe on the info from that one and won an honorable mention in a contest this summer.

I was just given a free sack of vienna last week at "teach a friend to homebrew" and am planning on doing a 10 gallon batch with a buddy in a couple weeks.
