You can follow the instructions the others gave then. It's a straightforward and simple procedure.
Thank you again. This forum doubles the fun of home brewing. I have a can of Blond Ale HME from a Mr Beer kit. Is this something I could add to this kit with a positive result? I just don't see messing with the little batch again and wonder if I could put it to use and what it would mean.

Then put the secondary vessel into the fridge again and slowly lower the temp 2-3 degrees per day from room temp to 35 F. Once at 35, leave to lager for 4-6 weeks.

Some people don't transfer to secondary... thats fine, generally you will be safe.. But I worry about leaving my beer on the yeast and trub for 6 weeks. Also, some don't think you need to slowly lower the temp. But after reading "Yeast" by Chris White & Jamil Z, I always slowly lower the temp.
This is great help. Though it's going to make for an agonizing 6 weeks to see how it turns out. I'm sold on the gradually lowering of the temp.
