Notes

Ferment at 10C till about 1.022, around 12 days.
Raise to 14-15C for diacetyl rest
Lager at 4C for 3 weeks
Then lager at -2C for 2 weeks

So total ferment and lagering process takes around 6 weeks

After 90 minute boil, flame out, whirlpool and the turn off and allow everything to settle before adding the whirlpool hops.
Temp should be around 90C by then.

Yeast should be a low sulphur yeast and need 8 to 10 packs of dry yeast to aim for 2 million cells per mL

Target Gravity 1.047
Final Gravity 1.009 - 11

PH should be around 5.2
Use lactic acid to lower if needed
