Fermenting Lagers July 21 2014
For lager fermentation, try following this fermentation schedule:
- Pitch into cold wort, around 45F.
- Allow the beer to free-rise up to your primary lager fermentation temp, 52-55F, and ferment at that temp for the duration of primary.
- Once primary fermentation is complete, preform a diacetyl rest, which entails raising the temperature to around 68F and holding it at that temp for 2-3 days.
