Notes

pick up irish moss

4 packets of yeast

the colder you start out, the less the diacetyl that is produced
Let it go for 12 hrs at 40 degrees. creep up to 50 degrees by 48 hrs

Steve's thoughts: I don't entirely agree with his fermentation method
mostly because normally you would actually do what's called a diacetyl rest
because SOME "will" be produced, so what you do is raise the temp after ferm is mostly finished, to let the yeast eat those byproducts basically
so you could follow his schedule, let it sit at 50 for a week or two, then raise to 65 or even 70 for 2 days to finish of the diacetyl
THEN down to lagering temps (close to freezing as you dare)
