GREAT! The guys posting above got me all fired up and I brewed 10 gallons on Sunday.

Get a big active starter going. I've switched to pitching cold so do some research on that. Cool the wort lower than fermentation temperature, chill the starter to a lower temperature than that, pitch and let the wort warm slightly.

You absolutely do not want any fruitiness in this beer. Keep it cool.

Ok made this on Sunday with the wiki enhanced double decoction mash. Came out darker than expected(boil got away from me ). I made a gallon starter crash cooled then decanted and pitched the cake. It was a fun brewday will post tasting notes when completed

I made this about a month ago and its currently lagering. So far the color, clarity, and taste are so amazing. When I thing of a good true lager, this would most certainly be it. 10 gallon batches for this guy from now on. Excellent brew!

Any info on this question would be helpful.

Thanks.

Kvess,

In my experience there is no need to return the beer to the lager fridge. You can leave it at basement temperature until you are ready to go to secondary. At that time you can cold crash the fermenters a couple days before going to secondary to help drop the yeast.

How exciting!!!! My 10 gallons from February is still lagering.

Next time you draw a beer I'd like to see a picture of that beer (if possible).

Update. I did the enhanced double decoction from the wiki on this one. I made it St. Patrick's weekend and did a d-rest. I lagered it for 6 weeks and kegged it. This is an awesome brew and extremely quaffable!!! The decoction darkened it up a little but not to dark for style. Will definetly make this one again.
