I was told that lager fermenting is different than ale. What should I be looking for these first few days? will there be bloopidge or will I just smell stuff?
can't wait to drink it.
It should look and act about the same as any ale will ferment. Sometimes you don't get much of a krausen with lager yeast, but sometimes you do. It might go a bit slower than an ale, just because of the fermentation temperature of about 50 degrees.
