Im planning to do an oktober fest this Friday and am using Omega Bayern lager yeast for the first time. I know some quys that have used it at ale temps for lagers and had no issues. Just wondering since this yeast is so versatile and quick to take off if I need to do a 2l started like I normally would with a lager yeast.

How did it go? What temp are you fermenting this. I brew german lagers pretty much exclusively and moved to this yeast as I'm intrigued about it being the Augustiner yeast. But, I've read on some German-oriented brew boards that this yeast requires a "warmer" lager ferment. I'm targeting 10.5 degree C (51 degree F) as a fermentation temp (vs. the normal "colder" ferment temp of 9 degree C)?

I’m nearing the end of my diacytel rest and it was my first time using this yeast. Also my first lager in general. I’m seeing an 80% attenuation going into the 2nd day of rest. This was after fermenting at 54• F for 14 days.
