I am going to brew this probably in a week or so as soon as a carboy becomes free. This time I will pitch 2 packets of 34/70 instead of liquid yeast. I will have a freezer with a digital controller to help me fine tune the fermentation/lager temps.

I brewed this and it turned out horribly.. probably my fault but anywho.. the final results ended with a major rice flavor lingering in the mouth. I call it my Sake Beer. It will be very difficult to pass this off to my friends.

Planning on bottling my version tonight. In no way would I mistake it for a true Stella, but it's still going to be good. The sample I've had has quite a hop pop, not at all like the smoothness of Stella. I think maybe the Liberty hops went into the boil too late. Next time I'd go with a 60 minute addition of Saaz, and then maybe a 30 minute addition of Liberty or Saaz.
Another contributor could be my water. It's fairly hard and probably need to use 75-80% distilled/RO water. This could be the issue with the hops popping more than expected. Regardless, I'll likely be brewing this again someday, or at least another version of it! My first lager!

I'd be careful with 2lbs of flaked maize in something this light. You'll end up with a cornbread taste. A little corn goes a long way. The flaked rice itself shouldn't have provided any read flavor, just a boost in alcohol.

I WAS going to brew this last weekend, but didn't have the ambition when I woke up. So putting it off for another couple weekends. Leaving out the flaked rice entirely.

Any one got a final recipe for this one.
Would like to brew it.

Which is best the one to brew.
With 1# or 2# of Flaked Rice?
Does flaked corn(maize) also work with this?

Thanks

Can't really speak to this one any more... I was lazy and tried kegging it before I had a CO2 tank. There was a leak, apparently, and all 5 gallons of mine got oxidized and tastes like crap... When I finally build my new FC and can lager again, I'll have to have another go at this one.

I brewed an 11 gallon batch of this on friday. I split it into two 5.5 gallon carboys. In one I added wyeast 2035 american lager yeast (stepped up the starter too). On the other one I added two packets of 34/70 dry lager yeast which is the same strain as wyeast 2124 danish lager yeast. I kept the same recipe at 20# of pilsner malt and 2# of flaked rice. Mashed at 148 for 90 minutes, then boiled for 90 minutes also. I want to know the results of dry lager yeast since I've never used it before. I should have a decent comparison between the dry and liquid yeasts in about 6 weeks or so. Happy brewing!

This is my first lager attempt - brewing today!

Using WLP830 and hoping for the best regarding fermenting at 50 degrees in my (freezing) utility room...hopefully have a post in a couple months with good results.

I brewed this again back on 1-06-12. I made a double batch (11 gallon gallons) and split the yeast between Wyeast 2035 American lager and 34/70 Dry Lager yeast. I lagered the 34/70 for 3.5 weeks (the 2035 is still lagering). I finally tapped the the 34/70 tonight and it is quite tasty I think. Even my wife who usually hates all of my beers liked this one. I'm making another double batch next week with yeast that I saved from this batch. Will report on the Wyeast 2035 once I tap it. I'm really liking this simple grain bill.
