Default Second first pilsner question.

My first pilsner is the Midwest kit. Its not a particularly big beer. OG was .042. The recipe recommends a secondary lager for 3 to 12 weeks. How long do you usually lager? Once in the keg how long do you age?

I usually go through primary fermentation until its down to 1.020 and then I pull it out of the lager freezer and put it in my spare bedroom for a d-rest. After that I rack it into a keg and lager it for usually around 2 months, but have done 6 weeks if I am in a time crunch.
