I doughed in at 122f rested there for 30 min. Then rested at 148f for 45min and mash out at 180. I fermented to with a 4 liter starter of wpl940 for 2 weeks. Direst at 65f for 2 days then down to 30f for 6 weeks. My posts are 13 months apart

A year plus since this post was bumped, but it's just what I was looking for! I have a tube of WLP940 in my yeast fridge just waiting to make a cerveza. (I don't like Corona.) I'm thinking of lightly toasting, then cooking some polenta as the corn for a 30% corn recipe. Also noticed you used Liberty hops. Is liberty the best hops to use for Mexican style lagers, and what other hops would work well?

Brewed this beer about 7 weeks ago and just kegged it today. Unfortunately I miscalculated my efficiency bigtime with my new equipment and my OG came in at 1.061. FG is 1.010. The sample I tried today was a bit harsh. Probably because of the high ABV. Hopefully it mellows a bit with time and after it is carbed, otherwise this batch might just be a wash.

Polenta needs a cereal mash or you are just going to make starchy beer.
