Nice - I have one lager going now, It's time to start up another one for late summer.

I never brewed a *really* light ale.

I just sampled my New Bohemia Pils last night. It's been lagering for 2 months now. Clear as a bell...delicious stuff. It's my first real lager...

Anyway, to the point: I would recommend, during your first week or two of lagering (post-fermentation), dry-hopping. Use pellets if you can---the cold temps help the particulate settle much better, so that upon racking, you can leave all of it in there. This is pretty much the only time I recommend using pellets to DH. So, anyway, when I tasted it, it has this awesome woody character to it that is almost certainly from the hops. It's really enjoyable. Just my 2 cents...

Hey goat, is that a stainless racking cane in your pot? I could really use one of those!

Based on the yeast you listed, I would assume this is not a lager, right?

1.039 is nice...for me at least.

My Belgian Wit came in at 1.036 and finished at 3.6%.

Just what I wanted for a nice summer session ale.

What are the aromatic grains like? I've never used...

yep, ss racking cane. after snapping numerous plastic ones i bucked up ten or twelve bucks and got the ss. it has a nifty little spring on the bottom to keep it off the bottom of vessel.

it is a kolsh style ale, but the kolsh is fermented at cooler temps than yer averidge english style ale, then cold stored (lagered) like a traditional pils.

the aromatic malt gives it a more malty flavor and smell...
