Brewed up Friday night. The brew went well. I'll post results. Man was it hard to drop this beer to 48 before putting it into fermenter. Took 66 lbs of ice recirced through counterflow. Got near boil and realized my starsan was not returned from a buddy. Let her sit 30 mins at 200. Then boiled and got the starsan so I sanitized carboys. Used magnum to bitter and a little hallertau @ 60 mins. 1/2 oz. the rest saaz. My saaz arrived at 3.0 aa so I had to compromise best I could.

What fermentation temp did you like better? I'm doing a pils with s-23 soon and I'm not sure if I want to ferment around 57* or do it lower around 47*. I like really clean lagers with not many esters.

In general, the lower and slower, the cleaner. S-23 will work under 50 with a big pitch, but keep an eye on it and get ready to raise the temp as necessary to get it to finish off strong.

I have two packets so I should be good. I'll go a little lower and see how it turns out

2 packs would be the minimum for 5g; be sure to rehydrate as per the manufacturer's instructions. I really would advise you to raise temps over 50 once you see fermentation slow significantly.

Good luck!
