2 15 gallon batches of German Pilsner (42 IBU so close to Pilsner Urquell without the triple decoction).... Each of the carboys is a different White Labs Lager Yeast... We shall see which one is crowned King of the Yeast!

And I have a nice library of those yeasts all slanted up...

Do you have a seperate fermentation chamber you use before you put them in there to lager?

Well done! I'm planning on purchasing a second chest freezer this summer so I can have lagers and ales on tap at the same time.

Yes - I have a second chest freezer with temp controller that can hold 3 five gallon bucket primaries. So 45 gallons can be in production at one time - as long as I can clear a batch from the secondary within 12 days of a primary beginning so we don't end up with any autolysis...
