    100F is ridiculously hot for a lager. Did you make a starter? What kind of airlock do you have?
    I had a similar situation with a Belgian Lager I brewed. I pitched a little on the warm side
    and didn't ...

    I'm pretty bummed about my latest brew. I brewed a Stella clone last Sunday, my 3rd extract
    brew, and have seen absolutely no signs of fermentation. I was patient this week thinking that
    it could take...
