That looks like a good balance to me, I like the 1/2 # of crystal and the 2# of munich.

Anybody use other yeast than steam?
I used WLP920 the last time that I brewed a steam.

I think the proportions look good, but I would rather use a nice pale ale malt, although that is just a personal preference. I don't know turbo crystal. I do love 2112, it was Rush's best effort!

I pieced together my electric RIMS setup and brewed a batch of this steam beer clone on Labor Day. You can read about it here http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/35-rims-heater-133208/.

I made a starter of WLP810, pitched around 68*F, and walked the temp down to 61*F where it has stabilized and is fermenting nicely in the fridge.

Earlier in the thread, the following general fermentation schedule was mentioned:
60 degrees for 1 week
50 degrees for 3 weeks
5 degrees a day drop down to 30 degrees
30 degrees for 1 week

Here's my question: At what point do you rack out of the primary and into another vessel? Do you go straight from the primary into your keg? At what point after primary fermentation is finished do you dry hop?

I've never brewed a lager before so I figure trying it out with a yeast this flexible would be a good start. Any guidance you can provide would be helpful. Thanks!
