I Had no idea what I was doing. I ordered the kit not even aware that it was a 2-stage beer. I knew I needed cold temps but it was the end of winter so no problem. I used crystal clear "crick water" from out back and cooled the wort in the ice cold stream. Just kept moving the beer to colder parts of the cabin.
First timer's luck. Damn good beer!!
I won't be able to do another lager until next fall/winter I suppose.
