21 days @ 52, 30 days @ 42. then do you go straight to a keg and tap?

I'm tempted to do 21 days @ 52 and then lager in the keg @ 42.

Yep I usually lager in a secondary then put it in a keg, but I have done the lagering in the keg as well without issues. It just is easier for me to secondary it.

Beer was an epic success! Had my family over on Saturday, drank 1 gallon or so from the keg. My dad kept asking for more, it was hilarious. Defintely re-assuring when your family wants more of your brew. Drank another gallon yesterday when wife's family came over. Both of my family's are conservative so this was an accomplishment!



I'll be brewing this at LEAST once a year, I love how hoppy it is. So glad I have another 5 gallons in bottles conditioning. Pic below, bad lighting (in man cave) but it is very clear!

Thanks newbeerguy. I'll have to find a six pack of the original to compare.

Thanks idigg! I am really glad it went over so well. The beer looks great. I actually made another batch of this myself last weekend. It's great to hear that you and your family liked it as much as I do. Cheers!

Just mashed this, mash temp ended at 147, any consequences for it being too low? This is my first lager. Thanks!

It may dry it out a tad, but it really depends on how long it stayed at that temp. Only a 3 degree temp difference over an hour span isn't bad. I wouldn't worry at all!

Make sure you pitch enough yeast an oxygenate well too. If you made enough yeast (400+ billon cells) I'd pitch the yeast at 45-48 degrees and let the fermentation take it up to 50-52. I think that gives the cleanest flavor.

I used S23 Dry lager yeast, mr malty says I only need one packet, should i go buy another and pitch it? Also I didn't rehydrate the yeast before pitching, is this going to cause an issue? Thanks.

I can't really speak for the rehydration on the S23 because I have never used it, but if Mr. Malty's calc said that 1 packet is enough, I am sure it is fine. Only thing I see if that if you started the fermentation cool (under 52) you might experience a longer lag time until active fermentation begins.

MrMalty will almost always encourage 2 packs of dry lager yeast for lagers. Make sure you move the selection from "ale" to "Lager." S-23 is very clean and works great in lagers when pitched cool and fermented <54 degrees. It has always taken my lagers longer to clear with S-23 than 2308 (my other go-to lager yeast), but it makes a deliciously crisp lager. Best wishes on that beer!

Didn't realize that, I will go buy some more yeast to pitch today, brewed it on Saturday night, no activity in the airlock as of today, hopefully it's not ruined
