Notes

Add dry yeast to top of the Wert. Place fermenter in a warm area (60-65°F).

Approx 1-3 days after adding the yeast and healthy fermentation is taking place, move your fermenter to your cool area (48-60°F). Basement floors during colder months or a refrigerator with temperature control.

Wait 7-10 days of fermentation, then allow to rise to room temperature for 24 hrs. Diacetyl rest. Transfer into a glass carboy for 3-12 weeks at lagering temperature (36-45°F).
