I have already removed all the shelves but now am wondering about the cooling tray at the top (where the ice cube tray would sit). The keg squeezes in but when I hook up the gas lines its to...

1st Lager

I just brewed my first lager yesterday and used California Lager Wyeast. The question is whether I was supposed to put the primary in the fridge at the get go or should I wait and let it ferment at a warmer temp for a week. The temp in the fridge is mid to high 50's. Any advice would be appreciated.

Whimped out....

Everything smelled fine but I wasnt willing to take a chance....I figured it was worth the couple bucks for the dry yeast...but never fail I tasted the starter before I dumped it and it tasted fine...Im sure it would have worked....at least now I know for next time....
