You need a temperature controlled environment first, lots of threads on ferm chambers. First 2/3 of the ferm @ 50 (cool a very large (1G) starter just below this), then final 1/3 @ 60, slowly chill to 40 (don't chill more than 4 deg / day), then lager for 2 mos. Also, you need lots of O2 for lagers, a stone w/ pure O2 is optimal.
