Mash at 150F. Pitch and ferment at 50F. A diacetyl rest should not be necessary, but check it after 7 days to be sure.
Produces a really great light lager. I have only compared this to one commercial example (Weinstephaner Original) and I think it is good if not better. Let it lager long and cold and it will drop brillantly clear. I will post a picture next time I pour a pint.
This is about as simple of a lager you can make. I dare any BMC or craft beer lover to say this is not a great beer.
