    Thanks for the confirmation. I racked to keg today and started the cold crash. Going to try 35
    which should be OK for my beers on tap too.

    I was confused if part of the reason was to clarify the beer. If so then I assume you want to
    use a carboy fit 30 days so the end result can go to a keg. If I rack to a keg immediately then
    my guess i...

    My first lager is fermenting away just fine but looking ahead at the final cold crash stage I'm
    confused. The advice is 30 days at 35 degrees. Is that in a secondary carboy? Or can I rack to
    a keg, pu...

    Well shoot. Reading about the submersible pump makes me regret the plate chiller I just bought.

    I think what I should have done is get my wort to 80 as best I could then transfer to the chest
    freezer and tape the probe to the side of the carboy and set the controller to 50. Then maybe
    in an hour...

    I have two ICs.I put one in the BK and use tap water to bring the wort from boiling to about
    100F fairly quickly. Then I put the other one in a bucket of ice and connect it to the one in
    the BK, turni...

  • Posted in thread: First lager fermentation temp advice on 06-23-2014 at 01:58 AM
    Just keep it at 50, when you're 80% done, take it out and give it a D-rest (10 degrees warmer)
    then lager close to freezing.Thanks for the reply. I think I need another post on the lagering
    step. To k...

    You want to set the controller in liquid, such as sanitizer (to better reflect the temp of the
    beer), not the ambient air temperature of the freezer. Or, attach the temp probe to the outside
    of the ca...

    I use my immersion chiller with tap water until I get my wort down to around 90 degrees, then I
    switch the hoses to an ice water re circulation setup to bring it down to lager pitching temps.
    Simple s...

    I brewed my first lager today and wanted to use my new fermentation chamber (chest freezer with
    Johnson controller). In my head I thought I'd get the wort down to ale temps then let the chest
    freezer ...
