I brewed my first AG Lager yesterday. A Bavarian Dunkle from NB. OG after boil came out to 1.048 a bit shy of 1.050.
I used White Labs 830 Lager yeast with a 1 liter starter. Fermenting at 52 degrees, says 50-55. However with the ales i have done in the past the fermentation has been quite active. But this one seems really slow
It is bubbling, but not nearly as much as I would like. Is this normal for a Lager since the temps are colder?
Nearly all the Ales I have done in the past i needed a blow off tube, but this I could easily use the airlock. Just wondering if this is ok or typical of a Lager.
Thanks in Advance..
