Should aging in the keg be done at room temperature or at serving temperature? I currently have mine in the kegerator but would be willing to move it back to room temp if that would decrease the aging time necessary. I was a bit more efficient that I wanted and started at about 1.065 down to 1.012, pushing me to a bit over 7% ABV.

I'd have to recommend aging as cold as possible, mainly since the style is actually a lager. Lagering really helps make the beer more lager-like.

Default Converting to partial mash


What does everyone thing about this converstion? I've never done AG before but figured a mini-mash of a couple of pounds would be a good way to ease in...

4.13 lb Pale Liquid Extract
4.13 lb Pilsner Liquid Extract
2.00 lb Munich Malt
0.50 lb Caramunich Malt
0.50 lb Caravienne Malt

Not changing anything on the hops bill.

If I wanted to age it for 3 weeks rather than 2 months, should I mash it at 156? Or is the benefit of 2 months of aging really essential?

Ed,

What was your efficiency on this? 14lbs of grain for a 1.062 seems like a lot. Beersmith puts me at just about 67% efficiency to get those numbers.

Those were my numbers the first time I brewed it.
