DKershner, No Pils Pils question
 
I brewed it as we discused but I lager fermented since lager yeast at 50* F and boy there is a ton of sediment.

Is this normal?

I am bringing the temp up to bottle slowly to about 66* (is at 56* now from yesterday 52*)

I don't usually get much of a difference in lagers in terms of sediment on the bottom of the fermenter, but the ferments do take longer to flocculate out. How long have you let it sit? What you are describing is called a diacetyl rest, and can be beneficial for some yeast, but dont leave it at those temps for more than a day or two.

You can bottle lager, but make sure to let it fully ferment out before you bottle, and then some, or else bombs can occur.

Saturday will be 21 days, the lager yeast I used said "51-59 optimal up to 75.

the beer is Super clear, and smells amazing. Just was not sure if normal to have that much sediment, all the other brews have been normal. This is my first GF beer, was surprised at how much sediment considering no mash or steep was done

Sounds like time to lager. Go for it!
