I'm sorry, but this is also goin to be my first lager brew as I just ordered a 55# bag of the bohemian pilsner for my saison, & am looking for other great uses for it!

"Lagered in keg" means what? I am guessing it should be kept cold, but I don't know much beyond that...

Thanks for the help - this sounds delicious!

lagering literally means to store or to keep. The modern beer definition would be storing at a cooler temp for a certain time before packaging or serving. Flavors tend to mellow, blend, and even peak at certain ages. Etc...
