Yeah, I would leave it in primary for at least a week. Check the gravity if you are unsure, but AT LEAST a week. I think I left mine for 3 weeks or so.

[QUOTE=Mutilated1;524006]Fermented for two weeks in the mid to low 50s, then racked to a secondary for four weeks in the low 50s and mid to upper 40s. After 4 weeks, bottled it and gave it 2 weeks to carbonate and another month to condition in the bottles in the fridgerator.

I'm impressed with all the aging you manage to do. I don't seem to have the patience....with one notable exception, my maibock sitting in my garage lagering LIKE A BAWSS. all the others, I can't wait to start drinking.

I fight this temptation by brewing repeatedly. The hard part about lagering is that you have a month or two with literally nothing to fiddle with. If you have a couple of other batches in earlier stages, that takes the edge off.

I have yet to see what the long term effects of this strategy are, though. I think things might get interesting when 5 gallons each of Doppelbock, Bock, and Maibock all come out of the pipeline within a couple weeks of each other...... Should make for a heck of a Spring.

May sound noobish, but I'm having a difficult time finding lager malt. Any suggestions?

No problem being a noob. Don't worry about lager malt, it is just a lightly kilned base malt. You can use pilsener or plain 2-row malt. I've never personally encountered something called "lager malt" at any shop.
