    Great. I just brewed my first lager. The fermentation went as expected and it is sitting in the
    beer fridge lagering as we speak. I started out at 65* per the wyeast package for 12 hours and
    lowered i...

    For every person saying pitch at 45 and raise to 50 there is one saying pitch at 65 and lower
    when you see activity.Exactly. I do remember reading some posts on here about starting under
    50, but it se...

    Awesome, I'll check it out. The only reference I've had for lagers is Palmer's "How to brew",
    which in the lagers section uses a lot of qualitative verbage rather than quantitative. So I
    knew I needed...

    Fair enough. I think the problem was that my efforts were focused in getting my info from the
    wrong places. If my local brew shop guy said a 2L starter with one pack of yeast was enough I
    believed him...

    Thanks, guys. Sounds like i'll have a solid plan for the next batch.

    ^^^That still may be under pitching.Looks like it. Mr. Malty says I would need 2 packs in 1.64L
    wort, or one pack in 4L wort.

    I agree with all of the above. Pitching at 45 and allowing the beer to rise to 50 degrees (no
    higher) will encourage yeast growth and reproduction and a good healthy start. I know people
    pitch at 70 a...

    Wow thanks for the quick replies.As far as the yeast goes, my starter was one smack pack into
    2L of wort that was about .045 gravity. Let that go for 24 hrs, swirling occasionally. There
    was more than...

    Hi. This is my first post. Sorry, it will be long, but I want to be detailed.So I had been
    brewing for about a year when I decided to try my hand at lagering. Went with a keezer design,
    got a 75$ used...
