Notes

Like most lagers, I'd give this 2 months from brew day before serving. 1 month in the fermenter (dry-hop at the end if you're going that route) and another for lagering.

1388 takes a long time to drop out, even with gelatin.

I serve this about 2psi higher than normal (flow control helps). There will be foam, but a nice fluffy head is to style and there should be a bit more prickly carbonation.
