Pissed made this last night, OG way OFF! 1.04ish only second all grain batch. Using 70 QT cooler, bazooka screen. Thought I followed Rezzy's instructions ( well I did add Saaz for aroma at 5 minutes). Another thing that surely changed reading if only slightly I pulled 1.5 Qt of first running's for the yeast starter. Oh well pitched the yeast starter it will still be beer, and hopefully still taste wonderful.

I made this recipe on 8/5. my very first lager. I am about to start lagering it for 2.5 to 3 months. It tastes great, thanks for this recipe. Next time I have to do a better job of hitting the OG.

I used Bohemian Lager wYeast 2124

Here are some numbers for this batch.

OG was 1.044 compared to goal for the recipe of 1.051
FG is 1.016 compared to 1.010 for the recipe.

with an ABV 3.6%

Lagering at 1C or 33.8F :-)

Everything I have read on this style suggests to not use too much caramel malt. This recipe looks like it has twice the amount suggested in the OP BYO article (.75#).

I subbed the c60 for c40 but still worry it will be too sweet. This is important as I will enter it in a comp in which 300$ will be on the line.
Does anyone have any professional reviews/scores on this?

Since the grain is already mixed, I will probably bump it up to 9lbs vienna and up the batch to 5.5g to be on the safer end of things.

Has anybody tried an extended mash on this to dry it out more? I absolutely inhaled my keg of it, and am definitely going to make it again but think I would like it just a bit drier.

I did a 2.5 gallon BIAB batch last year and "ghetto" lagered at 50 degrees. Turned out great and didn't last very long. Friends ask me all the time when I'm going to make another batch.

At 7 months of age it scored 43 & 44 in one comp and didn't medal (dang marzens ).

At 11 months it took 3rd at a different comp. Judges did note that it tasted a little aged.

I hope to brew this again within the next month.

Awesome beer!!! Thanks Revvy.

I brewed this up 3 weeks ago. Brew day went well. Fermented at 50F for 20 days then diacetyl rest for 3 days at 65F. Today I transferred to secondary, took a gravity reading and it came out to 1.018. Ouch! Beersmith estimates a FG of 1.012 so I'm out 6 points. My bad as I didn't take a gravity reading after 20 days of primary. I figured the fermentation was near complete as the burping had slowed down to nearly nothing. Guess I was wrong. I used German Lager WLP830 with a 2 step starter to get me in the 400 billion cell count range.

Anyhow, my question is. Should I keep my secondary bucket at 65F for a few more days to see if the suspended yeast will clean up? Or would you just go ahead and lager at 35F right now?

I brewed this recipe on 8/5 and and on 8/25 moved it to a secondary fermentor after I put a layer of co2 in the secondary to help prevent oxidation. I am finally able to bottle it this weekend. I wish I could keg it but I'm just not there yet. I do have a couple of questions, this is my very first lager.

Do I need to add a little yeast when I add the sugar for carbonation?

I should just add enough sugar for a regular carbonated brew?

Can anyone chime in on the question above? This is my first lager as well. Also what is the best procedure for preventing the airlock fluid from being vacuumed into the carboy when I bring the temp down?

Use an S type air lock. They just bubble the opposite direction when pressure changes.
