    Hey guys,
    I'm in a dry country and I was able to get these ingredients in, can I make a pale lager with them?

    1- Briess Pilsen Light DME (6lbs)
    2- Pilsen Belgian grain (1lb)
    3- Hallertau Hop Pellets 1 oz
    4- Saflager W-34/70 Dry Yeast (11.5 g)
    5- 1 irish moss tablet

    I can't get any more ingredients so this is what i'm planning on doing:

    1) steep grain for 30 mins at 70C
    2) add the DME and bring to a boil
    3) add hops, boil for 60mins. add the irish moss tablet at the end of the boil
    4) cool wort to room temperature and transfer it to the carboy and then add water to achieve 5G volume. pitch the yeast then.
    5) put the fermenter in the fridge (about 3C) and let it ferment for 4 weeks.
    6) I have no keg, so i'm planning on using bottles. I'll add sugar to achieve about 2.4CO2 volume.

    will this give me a pale lager beer? if not what should I do differently?

    Thanks.

    I recon it will JohnAdam. Isn't that fermentation temperature below 34/70 temp range? All in all it should be fine in my opinion ;)

    Try 12.8°C with that yeast. Then lager at 0.3°C.
