I need a little clarification (advice). I'm trying this recipe for my first lager. The recipe describes primary fermentation for 21 days, with a diacetal rest at roughly 7 days. After the rest, will I return the primary ferment vessel to my cooler for the remaining days up to 21, and then rack it to secondary? Thanks for the help!

I would check with the manufacturer on the yeast however normally D-rests are done at the end of fermentation to make sure 1) fermentation is done, 2) to clean up any D-flavors primarily described as butter scotch. Ferment in the primary until no more bubbles.... then D-rest for maybe 5 days then cool to upper thirtys and rack to secondary on the gelatin clarifier mentioned in earlier threads.

Last night I drew the first pint off this batch...Worth the Wait! Excellent flavor, beautiful color - really nice lager. After tasting this, I put in my grain order for a full 10 gal batch.

Since it turned out so nice I'm curious about how long it took, and if you used the gelatin? I'm glad your first lager turned out so well. Congrats

Kitemanks, I brewed on Jan 4, kegged and carbed on feb 11, and drew a pint on feb 17. I did not use gelatin. It cleared up so well in primary and secondary that I didn't need it. Because of the time involved in primary/secondary, I'll definitely make this a 10 gal brew from now on.

Nice! I almost forgot about this recipe until I got the emails on the thread recently...ya know how it is brewing for friends and Super bowl, but I want to do this one for me. I've pretty much got my landshark, and corona clone down time to brew this one next. Thanks and happy brewing
