Yeah, rest at 65-68 F for 2-4 days (some people rest for up to 7), then drop it down to 34 F for a couple of days to help clear it some more, then you can transfer to the keg to lager for a month.

Good luck!

So I rested this bad boy and put it in the keg to lager. I tested my ABV and I am at 10.37% Woo Hoo! This will definitely pack a wallop! Not sure I can wait 3-6 months for this!

Going to get this brew going in the next week or so to have ready when my son is born in May! Figure theres nothing like a 9% lager to help ease the transition into fatherhood!

Just moved mine to 2ndary after 3 day 68F rest. Gravity is down to 1.012 and started at 1.087! Shes going to be a healthy batch! Tastes awesome at the moment. Now to just let it sit for 2 more months.... /cry

Brewed this up on MLK day. Chugging away at 48 in my basement (a little cold, but seems within the tolerance for Budejovice). Looking forward to seeing how it turns out! Haven't brewed a lager in years.
