Notes

first attempt at true lager.

hoping for fermentation around 52F in my basement (with help from ice packs).

ferment for 2-3 weeks in conical.

move to keg, increase temp to 65F for 3 days

slowly lower temp to 37F over about 9 -10 days

lager for additional 2.5 weeks at 37F

would love to do 10 gallons but do not have room to store 2 kegs for that long.
