Steeped 1Lb of English Brown, 1Lb Crystal (40L), and 8oz Chocolate until Temp hit 170F
7lbs Light malt extract Boiled for 60min
1.5oz Cascade hops Boiled for 60min for Bittering
1 Tablet of Whirlfloc clarifier at last 5 min of boil
and 1oz Cascade hops at last 2min of boil For aroma
Cooled the kettle to About 78F poured into fermenter filled the rest up until 5 gal mark got a avg temp of 69F got about a OG reading of 1.049 and pitched my yeast hopfully comes out good this is more 1st home brew ever ill let yall know how it comes out

Pretty much. Only reason I find lagers to be harder is because its tougher to hit good lager temps as opposed to ale temps. But a temp controller will fix that. Also, ales are generally ready quicker.

Trust me, get one. Its made things more worry free. A deep freezer is a good thing to go along with it if ya have one.

Its what I use for the fermentation chamber. Smaller and more energy efficient. If I remember tomorrow ill send ya pics of my setup. Plus its good for storing bottled beer when u arent fermenting. Just set the temp control to whatever application youre doing at the time basically.
