Awesome! We'll both have this beer ready for summer! Great to hear that you got your brew day in.

Please keep me posted. Pics would be great! I want to brew a pilsner for July 4th and this recipe looks like what I was planning

This is a picture of the beer and yeast bed after a 7 day D rest at 68-70 room temp.

Slick! That's exactly what my beer looked like. I just racked to a corny and started lagering mine this afternoon. I'm pretty pumped.

Sorry, but no pics this time. This isn't really a pilsner, its a Premium American Lager. A pilsner will be more bitter, use pilsner malt, and (generally) use a liquid yeast from Germany. This will be more sweet, crisp, and grainy. Either way, you'll brew up something tasty! Have fun and let me know how it goes! My PAL won't be done lagering until the pale ale I just put on tap is gone in a few months. Patience is a very good thing in brewing.

It will be great to have this beer ready for the hot weather! Hows your lagering going? When are you going to keg/bottle it?

I'm just into my 4th week of Lagering at @ 34F. Do you think there is a significant improvement if I manage to wait longer? It's already H-O-T here in Vegas, so I'm ready for a cold one (or two) of these. I'm kegging this one.

It's your beer, have at it! Let us know how it is. Generally, I find its best once lagered to clarity. Once it's crystal clear its done lagering for me. Keep us posted.

Good advice. I'm planning on transferring to keg, pressurizing and letting it sit at 34F until I have an open tap which should be soon. I'll post a few pictures of the final results.
