Have been trying to research old threads, but still not sure so I pose this for some advise. Did my first lager, a Vienna style from local brew store. Did the primary fermentation, followed with 3 day D-rest, then racked to secondary and have now been at 33-35F for 4 weeks.

Little on the beer, it is a 1.048 OG, finished at 1.013, right to targets, used S-23 dry yeast (2 packs rehydrated).

I recall seeing posts recommending anywhere from about 5 weeks to months. I would appreciate any thoughts on past experiences with similar style beers and rough secondary lagering times. I will transfer to bottles
for final carbonation/conditioning.

I recall seeing a few thread that suggest a week per .01 OG. I would also look at you beer and judge for yourself if it has cleared up as much as you want.
