Mash all grains for 1 hour at 152 degrees.

Chill down to 50F and pitch yeast.

Ferment for about 10-14 days until primary fermentation just finishes.

    Brilliant! My first lager and one of the best beers I’ve ever made. Took 6 weeks to lager and about 2 weeks to drink. Hahaha Highly recommend! I stayed close to this recipie. Only difference is I did a double decotion. Cheers!
