I'm excited to hear how this turns out for you guys, especially since you're following a more proper procedure with your temps. I'll have to do this one again once I get more reliable temp control. It turned out great for me so I can only imagine how well your beers should turn out. Keep us posted.

I racked mine to secondary this weekend. It was still rather cloudy, I am hoping that will it will clear. I am going to drop the temp by 5 degrees per day to get to 35 degrees and lager for 1 month. Also, is wlp800 a top fermenting yeast? I really couldn't see the top of the brew because of krausen residue left stuck to the better bottle. I did see some offwhiteish particles while racking at the top of the beer line. Slightly concerned about infection, but I have never had one before and don't really think I have one now. Just wanted to know a little more about how this thing went for everyone else. Really wanted a nice clear brew.

Lager yeasts are bottom fermenters. I'm sure those particles you're talking about are nothing. This beer will clear quite a bit in secondary. Are you kegging or bottling?

I knew that... about lager yeast man i have had a rough couple days. I think I got a serious case of the dumb.

I am bottling..

Also. I think it was just left over from my rather larger krausen/blow off material.

WLP800 is bottom fermenting, as is all lager yeast. There is still going to be the krausen crud though, and that is probably what you saw on the top. As for clearing. It'll clear as it lagers and the yeast drops out. Lager yeast takes a lot longer to complete its process and go dormant than ale yeast. Also, dry hopped beers tend to have a slight haze to them anyway when unfiltered.

Mine has been lagering for two weeks at 35 degrees now and has still yet to clear... but just a little smell through the airlock smells great. Hope it will drop clear soon.

I've never done dry hopping, so I'm looking for some clarification... the recipe says ".5 oz. Saphir (dry hop-1 week secondary)" with a total time of 21 days in the secondary. Does this mean I add the hops for the last week in the secondary, or does it mean something else?

Yep, just throw them in during the last week of secondary.

Thanks, Hooter! I have a honey ale coming out of primary in a few days, and I'm really looking forward to trying your pilsner.
