Me: "What temperature are you fermenting at?"

Guy: "Well it's been around 65-70F the whole time. Also I'm using the Wyeast Northwest Ale Yeast."

Hmm.....alrighty! I did let him know to just take gravity readings for a few days and if it doesn't change it's good to go.
I'm confused how the airlock is bubbling every few seconds after 2 weeks!

Temperature swings, CO2 coming out of solution, yeast working on the last little bits of sugar, ... Could be a number of things, which is why everyone says not to trust the airlock, but to look for hydrometer stability before packaging.

I label mine Pilsen Ale. But now I have an STC-1000! Real Pilsener, here I come!

Lager-flavored ales (if there is such a thing) can be made with WLP060. Someone in this thread talked about a maibock they made with it. I tried it on a Marzen and a Maibock at about 66F and they aren't half bad. But they are indeed ales.

that was my maibock. entered it into club comp and no one, including BJCP judges, figured out it was an ale.

My Hopped & Confused ales have all used WL029 kolsh yeast. Gives good lager-like flavors between 64-69F with lager or pilsner hops & grains/extracts.
I even made a dark "hybrid lager",if you will,with a cooper's Heritage lager can & some grains per a recipe from ohcrap on here. Def was well liked,even by some BMC drinkers that tried it. So it's as much what you make it out of as the yeast you use to get lager-like qualities. When the weather cools down,I wanna make'em again,but with some German grains. I washed a few jars of the WL029 yeast for starters to use in'em as well.
It was kinda cool to see 3 of the four lawncare guys like my hybrid lagers after finishing the job at hand. The head guy though didn't care for them as much,asking if I had any of those bud lites with the lime in it left? Oh well...3 outta 4 ain't bad...

A few weeks ago I asked my wife to pick up some beer to be used with brats later that evening. I told her she could get just about anything from our grocery store's limited selection and it would work, just don't get anything too hoppy.
Thankfully she returned with a 6 pack of Kona "Fire-Rock" Pale ale. She apologized, saying she looked for and couldn't find any IPAs and hoped the Fire Rock wasn't too hoppy.
Brats were good though

A few weeks ago I asked my wife to pick up a case of Hibernation while she was in Denver, as I was having a hard time finding it up here in the mountains. I repeated the name two or three times so she wouldn't forget. She came back with a case of Isolation. Fortunately I like Isolation as well (they're both good winter seasonals), and I found my Hibernation a few days later, so everything turned out alright.
