Hey Revvy,
I'm cookin up your Vienna Lager as we speak. I only had a Nottinghams yeast so it will be a suedo lager. I'll ferment at the low end and live with the less than ideal results (par for the course when you live in the boonies).
I listened to the pod cast by Chris Colby, a good listen for sure. Can you shed some light on a comment he made about racking off of the primary yeast at the precise time. Up to now I've parked my lagers in my cold box at 50ishF for 30 days then lagered. How do I judge/measure this precise time he spoke of?

According to my calculations, a beer that starts at 1.051 and ends at 1.010 ought to be 167 calories per 12 fl. ounces, or 222 calories per (16-ounce) pint.

Beersmith sets the default measured OG to 1.010 and FG to 1.005, and it calculates the caloric content from measured values, not expected. It drove me nuts for a while until I figured it out, so I just fix that by hand when I'm done with the grain bill, and update it after each measurement. It'd be nice if it defaulted to the expected, but having it be different reminds you to fill it in, I suppose.

how are you getting an OG of 1.051? brewers friend says that with that grain bill you need to be getting 85% or better efficiency.

Sounds interesting. Did you only pitch one packet of yeast @55 degrees?
