Would secondary fermentation be viable in a keg? I haven't lagered before, so I don't know how yeast growth works during the cold fermentation stage.

Brewed this today in anticipation for my dad's birthday. He loves German lagers and not so much American and English ales. I like the ales so that is what I brew most of the time. This should be good and ready by Memorial day to give him 2 cases which will translate into a years+ supply of beer. He will have a beer once every couple of weeks.

The only issue I had was that my LHBS did not have the liquid yeast so I had to go with Saflager 34/70. Not crazy about using dry on my FIRST lager but I am hoping for the best.

I am going to ask this one again. I just brewed this recipe and I know I will rack to a secondary 10 days in, should I leave it in the secondary for the entire 8 weeks of lagering?

I haven't kegged but I believe lagering in a keg is perfectly fine. But you might want to check in the kegging area of the forum or do a search for lagering in a keg. If your FG is not as low as expected you might want to burp the keg every few days although that might not really be necessary...like I said I haven't kegged yet.

I am a little worried about the 7 days @ 65 degrees. I keep reading that I should be around 45 degrees raise temp to 70 for 3 days then drop to 35 for 8 weeks. Any rational for the higher temp

Environment initially.... It's all I had. But the first two batches were good, so I just kept going with it.

I just had a bottle of this that was aged 8 months in the bottle. AMAZING. So good this recipe is going to be one of the 3 I make most often. I could not believe how much better it was after a long time in the bottle.
