No matter your method, you will NEVER exceed 8ppm O2 by using air. This is fine for standard
and low gravity ales.For lagers and high gravity ales, 10-14ppm O2 is required for the best
results in term...

Just like cystal 60 or jolly ranchers the yeast is an ingredient imo. Which one you choose
matters.But I thought you said 2-row and pinch of hops will taste like 2-row and pinch of hops,

All of that is absolutely significant lol. You fermented at lager temp, brought it up for a
diacetyl rest then started lagering. That's a bit different than what the OP has been doing
riding the whole...

I don't think you need lots of yeast in suspension to make these beers and make them well. To
