I'm excited to try this one for my second batch ever. I wanted to try a lager since I heat my house with wood and can't keep a constant temp in my house, but my garage stays at around 45F great for lager yeast I hear.

Did you ever try this? How did it come out?

Looking forward to my first lager batch! How long do you let this one ferment for? And what temps?

Ferment 52F 2wks
Drest 65F 3days
Back down to 50F for 2days
Transfer to secondary 50F 2wks
Keg lager for 2wks

I already skipped secondary did the Drest and went back to 50 and held for a week and straight to keg with gelatin.

I tested this one once in the keg daily after the first week the transformation is amazing.

The last one I made with wlp840 it came out to dry. I will use wlp830 or wlp838 next time.
The original recipe was made with 2 packs of s23 which came out excellent.

I will post a pic next time I tap one its a awesome looking lager!
