    Seems like the right timing for brewing up a Christmas Ale (all-grain unmilled).

    I think you are going to want a chugger pump. It is invaluable for batches 10 gallons+.

    Lagers need such a high pitch rate having a cake is a great situation. Like moreb33rplz says
    I'd probably scoop like 2/3rds out and save. I started lager for the first time last winter and

    Safety first: make sure you have ground fault interrupt some where in the system.I can't be
