Ferment according to your yeast. Those of us that used lager yeast fermented cold. Ale yeast would ferment warmer.

Just thought I would pop in for a quick update on my batch of this beer.

It fermented pretty quick from the 2nd to the 5th, at which point the beer temp dropped to match the ambient temp pretty well, figuring most of the heavy fermentation was done. I let it sit for another 8 days at ferm temp (about 62) and then brought it to a warmer area of the house for a couple days for a diacetyl rest (altho not sure if one is needed or not with WLP029, but I did it anyway).

Today I racked it to a secondary and moved it to my garage to lager at the low 40s for a month or so. However, we are expecting our second baby any day now, so who knows when I'll be able to bottle. The gravity reading of the sample was 1.012, down from the OG of 1.050. It tasted great although didn't have any discernible lager character, but rather resembled a delicious porter. Hmmmm? Oh well, we'll see what lagering does, hopefully making it more "lager-like". Either way, it will be a good beer, just maybe not very Germanish.

See my recipe at post #18 in this thread if you're interested in doing this thing in partial mash form and with a lager-like ale yeast. Also, here is the picture I promised on my last post.

@arizona

That looks good. I'm sure it will be better with bubbles.

I used BarleyWater's recipe and have it lagering now after three weeks in the primary @ 67 F. Smells great, looks nice in the carboy. I'll post a pic when I keg it.

Just started cracking into a batch of your recipe I made around three months ago, my friends and I love it. Made it point for point and it turned out great. Thank you!

I see why this recipe won a gold medal. An excellent beer. I tapped my keg this weekend and have not been able to stop drinking it since. Cheers!

I made a 2.5 g batch of this last winter and mashed 60 min at 153. OG was 1.056, only alteration to the grain bill was I didn't have any crystal so I threw in a few ounces extra of base.

I used all hallertau but in equivalent additions. This has been one of my favorite beers I've made, thanks for the recipe BarleyWater!

What does a 90 min boil on this beer add? I've only got the capacity to boil 6.5 gallons, would a 90 min boil would boil off too much?

There is a fair amount of pilsner in here, so I imagine that the 90 min boil is to drive of dms. You could either bool less forcefully, or reduce the batch size to compensate. You could always use pilsner lme instead, which has already been boiled so you could probably get away with a shorter boil time.
