Indeed, that sounds good. I've messed around with 3 lager yeasts now 830, 833, and 838 (same as
the 2308). All decent, but I prefer the 833. Probably stick with it for all my lagers. 830 was

In addition to what cadillac said, I would say DON'T write anything by hand. You only need your

One thing to add...I was a dyed in the wool batch sparger, saw no reason EVER to change on the
homebrew level, until I did my first decoction. mjohnson's post above reminded me when he
