Have another lager question but it is completely different from the last one I posted so I thought it was worthy of another thread. How do you reach you lager temps? Lets say your primary fermentation was at 50-52 F, you did your diacetyl rest at 62 F for 48 hrs and racked to a secondary. How fast should I take it down to lager temps I was thinking 34-35 F. I was thinking of starting back at the original temp at about 50 F and going down about 4-5 degrees a day to reach my goal in 3-4 days. I also thought this could be to fast of a drop and go at 2 degrees per day which would take 8-9 days to get to the lagering goal.
