Notes

primary ferment at 52F.

raise temp to 67 for 4-6 days for diaceytl rest.

lower temp to 37F and lager for 4-8 weeks.

carbonate in fresh keg.

add lime at kegging/carbonation. (18 grams/1 pack in each keg) - after brewing this several times, 18g of the crystallized lime is HEAVY. It’s drinkable if you love lime. But moving forward, probably only 1/2 pack per 5 gallon brew.

reusing previous American lager yeast from another brew.
Omega yeast - (OYL-103)

mash for 90, boil for 75.
I’ve brewed this beer twice, so far. First as a 5 gal, then a 10.
In the first brew, the yeast stalled, I think I under-pitched, so the abv was way low.
In the second, 10 gallon brew, there was clear channeling in the mash tun around the sides, and the OG was lower than expected.

Third time is a charm! - Third brew went very well, no channeling, crystal clear lautering, good mash efficiency (91%). Healthy starter, expect good fermentation.
