Apparently the groundhog was lying, or forgot about the upper Midwest this year in his forecast, because we have gotten a late start to our spring.

I am hoping to brew a lager here in the next week or so. My fermentation chamber (fridge with a temp control) is my in garage, so naturally I need it warm enough to get and keep this yeast going.

How cold is too cold for this strain? I read 48-52 optimal, but can it work into the mid 40s?

I am thinking of daytime temp can stay 50 or above (60 forecast three days after brew day, but then mid to low 50s), as long as I keep my fermentation chamber closed I feel like I should be okay. I can't imagine losing too much temperature if the outside temp falls into the mid 40s

Before I waste all this wonderful (and expensive) grain, hops, and yeast for an authentic German lager, I figured I would make sure I was going to be okay.

Thank you all
