"My experience with lagers is DON'T pitch until you get the wort to
fermentation temps. Every lager I've pitched cold has been better than
any lager I've pitched warm. Make a LARGE starter...it's not uncommon
for me to make a 2 gal. starter for a lager. Aerate REALLY well.
Ferment at 45-55 for 2-3 weeks, or until you're witin a point or 2 of
your FG. DSon't worry about how long ot takes or be in a rush to get to
secondary. After primary is nearly done, you can raise the temp to the
mid 60s for a couple days to do a diacetyl rest if needed. I usually go
to secondary at arounf 45F for a couple weeks after that, but you can go
staright to lagering. Lager at around 35F for at least 2 months, or as
long as you can stand it!"
