I am thinking about brewing this beer and trying to work it into the schedule so it would be peaking around the 3-4th week of February. With the holidays and life in general being busy, I am trying to get a better handle on my brewing calendar and when I should brew this beer so it peaks at the right time.
I really don't know when it would be at peak. I lager it, and then put it on tap and drink it till it's gone. I haven't noticed any changes in that time, positive or negative.

I may be drunk, but I'm not sure.

Sounds good. Knowing that it doesn't really change, I can get it on the calendar any time it fits in the next month or two.

Just started brewing 6 weeks ago on my 5th 5 gallon batch so far, trying to make this stuff this time because I live in CA and sounds like a lager I can do with my basic equipment and I like Anchor steam). all grain so far so good, got this recipe from brew your own magazine and i rounded off the numbers up a little

10 lb 2 row pale
1 lb crystal 60
northern hop pellets 1 oz 60 min
northern hop pelets .5 oz 15 min
cascade pellets( had them left over from last batch) 1 oz end of boil soak for 10 min
liquid 2112 cal lager yeast


OG of 154

bubblin away day 3 at temp between 55 and 65 in a 6.5 gallon plastic bucket, I am planning on secondary a few days after bubbles stop( a week total of primary?)

cant wait to see how it turns out, but I have a feeling it will be good beer

Well, its been about 3 weeks and I'm down to 1.020. I bumped my fermentation temp up to 65°F and roused the yeast about a week ago, but its still not moving. I've had 2112 stick on me in the past, I solved that with a little bit of DAP and Fermaid-K.

Not sure if I should rack it, feed it, warm it or move on and lager it.

Well, I roused it and left it on the yeast for another week and it hit 1019, so I figured it was done. Its been in the keg "lagering" in the keezer for about 2 weeks now. It smells simply incredible! Good thing I'll be out of town till the 26th because its going to be tough to keep my hands off this one

I brewed this one three weeks ago and pulled a sample during transfer to the keg today... it's freaking delicious and hasn't even lagered yet.

The only modification I made was to the hop schedule:

0.25 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - First Wort 60.0 min
0.25 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - Boil 30.0 min
0.50 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - Boil 15.0 min
0.50 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - Boil 20.0 min
0.50 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - Boil 10.0 min
0.50 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - Boil 5.0 min
0.50 oz Northern Brewer [10.30 %] - Aroma Steep 15.0 min

Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe!

I have a question regarding your d-rest, I just pulled a sample after 5 days and I am sitting at 1.022 I didn't detect any off flavors but want to do a D rest to be safe. Should I bump it up now and what temp do you recommend? It is fermenting at 61 degrees at the moment should I ramp it up to 68 for a day or two? Oh the OG was 1.054 if anyone wanted to know.

Yes, that would be fine to do it now.

I plan on giving this a whirl this weekend.

Yooper Common! Somehow when I say that in my head it comes out sounding like Chupacabra!

EDIT

Here we are about a month later. I made Yooper Common Amber with minor mods. (I don't have much capacity to lager right now so I made it as a straight ale.)

FG came out at 1.012, down from 1.056

This beer surprised me in how smooth and light it tastes. It does have a very nice finish. The color is a beautiful light copper. I'm force-carbing it in the keg and it won't be ready for the real world for some time yet, but first impressions are that this is an excellent beer, even when done as an ale.

Thanks Yooper!
