So I had to search around and really the only commercial vienna available to me is from king brewery. I tried it and liked it so I brewed a 3 Gal batch of your recipe as is. I didn't realize style would be so limiting to experimentation, need to educate myself some more I guess. Im just about a week into primary with this, darker than I anticipated, what do you think? My first lager brew so im looking forward to opening the first bottle!

Had a great time brewing this on my front porch. Had to do it because of rain. As it turns out the porch is a great place to brew!

Thanks for the recipe Revvy! I scaled it to 23L and used 50g of Saaz as I was short on the hallertau.

SG was higher than expected: 1060.

Made a 2l starter with wyeast Munich lager.

I'm a little concerned about the stuff on the ridges. Yeast? Hops? Trub?

So this was my first lager, has been in bottles for 2 months now. I'm happy with how it turned out Nice clear beer, smooth malty flavour and aroma, crisp finish. Carbonation is a little low, I did not add more yeast when bottled. Revvy, how is the head retention on this brew for you? I know I don't have much carbonation but any head I get when first poured or subsequently swirled goes down very fast. I'd brew this again and would like better head on it, though I am looking into kegging now for lager brewing to get around the issues of properly bottle conditioning a lager. Thx for the recipe man!
