Thanks, It's pretty tasty. I'm going to be brewing a 10 gallon batch with a buddy in the next couple weeks, we were both given sacks of vienna at "Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day." So it seemed perfect to dig this up.

The recipe was created while listening to this Basic Brewing episode;

Hey friend. Do you have a temp controlled fermentation chiller or how do you control the temps for fermentation? Thanks,

No, I just "ghetto lagered" this. I fermented it in the storage cupboard of my loft's garage, then lagered it at a friends for a month.

Yeah, I've not done lagers because my temp control is similar - based on the basement, garage or swamp cooler. Hmmm the garage might be ok, but at this time of year it might be dropping down to the lower range of the lager yeast . . . . will need to explore this.

Thanks!

I just sort of discovered last winter that my garage storage area was actually pretty cool to downright cold as the winter progressed, So I actually did a bunch of lagers after this where I didn't bother taking it to a friend's fridge to lager. I just racked them to secondary and put them back in there, it wasn't in the 30's but more like 40's, dipping deeper at night. And they all turned out great.

There is a good thread about that here' http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f163/lag...utside-134652/

It's been awhile since I added a recipe to the database, and it seems to me the fields have changed in the last couple years. So I wasn't sure I typed it in to begin with.

Hey Revvy, I've been dying to make a lager, but haven't had the chance for the last few months, so this coming weekend I'll finally have some time to brew something and this looks awesome. But the only thing, I'm not set up for AG just quite yet (soon), and wanted to brew this. So I threw together an extract recipe based on some ingredients I already have, and I think it looks alright, but what do you think?

5lb Extra Light DME
.5lb caravienne
.5lb crystal 60l
1.3oz Tettanger (60 min)
and some S-23.

Also, did you just pitch one packet of the dry yeast in the cooled wort?
Thanks
