So I'm getting ready to brew my first lager this week and I was wanting some good do's and don'ts.
I was looking to make something like sam's boston lager. So if any one could help me with the do's and don'ts that would be great!!
A few questions..
What temp and how long should the fermentation be? 1st and 2nd?
(I can get it down to 60* in the bastment) Will that be to warm?
Should I transfer to a 2nd (betterbotle carboy)
How long in the bottle? When do you know it's time to cool down the beer?
And all the other answers to question you might think I would have...
Like I said ANY info would be great!! I will need a good recipe or should I buy a "kit" ???
Thanks Kopp hop.
P.S. I have 3/4 lb of Dingemans CARA 8 lovibond 7.9
3/4 lb of Muntons Chocolate Malt lovibond 340-450
1 lb of Muntons plain Amber DME
Alot of nugget hops from the back yard and some Irish Moss
I would like to use this up if poss?
