Did my first lagers this winter. Both have come out damn good. Was just wondering how people do the lagering period. I primaried my beers for 10 days until gravity was low enough and at same level for a couple days. Did Drest on first beer because it was lighter. Lowered temp gradually to 40 then transfered to cornies and began lagering at 35. My main concern was whether to put an airlock on the cornies or just seal it and let it go.
Will it over carbonate? These beers probably not but how about something that was aged for 5-6 months? I aged for a month for a pils and 8 weeks for my bock.
