first lager is going well

Postby dartedplus » Wed Dec 18, 2002 7:32 pm

My first lager is doing well in the cool climes of the laundry room. It took it 2 days to get a nice steady ferment, but its going. Nice aroma, nice color. I'm already dying to have one. ha. maybe next month sometime!

avg lager time?

What is the average time a lager needs from brew to bottle? I am thinking of using my garage over this winter to try a Moosehead clone.

Chris,

I like too see two months until drinking.

7 days in the primary,
3 weeks in the secondary,
1 month to bottle condition, preferably at45-50F

It is worth the wait ...

Paul.

Sounds good, I think the garage is just the right temp. Got any good lager recipes?
