I'm going to take a trip up to my parents place in WI and give a lager a shot w/ my father. They way they're garage and connecting basement is heated in the winter, all we'll have to do is move the carboy to different spots to acheive the proper fermentation temps.
Anyway, I'd like to do a partial mash, and preferably a dark lager. From the few threads I saw, it sounds like this may take too long to lager as we'll probably only have 2 plus months to do it. Thoughts? Do they all take 4 months at lagering temps to smooth out?
Any recomendations for a good first lager partial mash recipie?
