    I brewed my first lager 5 weeks ago. after my d-rest I brought it back down by 3-4 degrees each
    day until it hit mid 30s. It happened to work out to be the 3 week mark from brew day so I
    kegged on day...

    nice, my ipas look about your color. OG usually in the 1.064+- then bump it with some cane

    similar to le...

    80-85% pilsner malt...or a combo of that with pils/2-row, 10% white wheat, 5-10% table sugar.
    you dont need any crystal or carapils for head retention, hoppy beers almost always have good
    head from th...

    What other malt bills have people tried that they thought are good? I have been wanting to try
    this one for awhile, very simple: need to get some pale ale malt though. Has anyone done one
    with mostly...

    carboy. id prefer not to go warm on day 1 as this strain throws some off flavors anything above
