Ferment 52F 2wks
Drest 65F 3days
Back down to 50F for 2days
Transfer to secondary 50F 2wks
Keg lager for 2wks
I already skipped secondary did the Drest and went back to 50 and held for a week and straight to keg with gelatin.
I tested this one once in the keg daily after the first week the transformation is amazing.
The last one I made with wlp840 it came out to dry. I will use wlp830 or wlp838 next time.
The original recipe was made with 2 packs of s23 which came out excellent.
I will post a pic next time I tap one its a awesome looking lager!
