This was my first lager I've tried brewing. The brew date was 04/02/11 and it was kegged (for lagering) on 05/09/11. It was first tapped earlier this month.
The ingredients are as follows:
- 9lbs - Domestic 2-row
- 8oz - CaraPils/Dextrine
- 8oz - Crystal 10L
- 2oz - Saaz hops(1oz at 60min, 1oz at flameout)
- Saflager S-23 dry lager yeast
I've seen many complaints on online message boards regarding S-23 yeast. Since this is my first lager I have nothing to compare it to, but I'm very happy with the taste of this and absolutely love the hops flavor of the Saaz hops.
Tomorrow I'll post a pic of another one of my beers that are on tap and will also discuss my first bulk grain purchase.
