Ok,the Original Series (that I call OS)lager has an ale yeast,so it's really a light pale ale. The heritage lager can has the lager yeast. I got the OS lager kit with my micro brew fermenter kit from Cooper's. The OG was 1.048. They gave me the brewing sugar,1kg with 80% dextrose,20% maltodextrin. And of course the mentioned ale yeast sachet of 7g.
Temp was 22C,going down to 19C at one point. FG was 1.012,& used the supplied PET bottles after sanitizing. About 2 weeks in primary. Bottled 2/13,was pretty good after 5 days in fridge starting 3/10. Had to get out the note book this time.
I've since used the OS lager as a base for other ales. It's pretty good used in that light. Like with some 3-4lbs of DME & hops. Different DME's,different hops,combining with another LME can & different DME's,etc. It can make some different styles of ales.
But the stock kit def needs some late hops,at least.
Everything works if ya let it-Roady(meatloaf)
