My friend who started me into brewing began with Lagers. After three batches together, I am gonna go it alone. Of course most of what I read suggests starting with ales, I want to stick with what I have already learned.

Though what I read in forums is helpful, I am looking for a Book on Lagering. Most of the books I have found have only about three pages on Lagering techniques and 600 recipes...

I am looking for something with substantial lager info. Also, my friend uses Krausening for priming. Again, from what I gathered, this too is an advanced technique.

Any suggestions on reading material in these areas are appreciated.

I don't think krausening is a particularly advanced technique, but it's probably true that most lager brewers don't do it.

Kaiser has many posts on German brewing techniques and that is how I learned about krausening. A great source of info:
