Excellent Lager yeast
This is a great lager yeast for many lagers, however I primarily use it in a German Bitburger I do. It lends to an incredible flavor with or without lagering the beer, but I do lager in my temp controlled freezer, typically for 6-8 weeks. The Yeast ferments great at the lower end of its optimal temperature, I typically put it in at the high end and as soon as fermentation takes off, I lower it 5 degrees a day until 48F. Don't forget to do the diacetyl rest once fermentation is complete, before you lager.

Made a great beer
Takes a while to ferment but your patience will be rewarded

Mine was fine
I had 10 Gal. in a chest freezer with a thermostat on it. I ran it at 52 degrees the whole 3 months until diacetyl rest. It bubbled with vigor.

Maybe it's me
It says max fermenting temp is 58 degrees. I tried 55 for three weeks and the fermantation was nearly non-existant. I increased one degree a day and got really good bubbling from the bottom at 60 degrees. It has been going at 60 for 3 days now and the krausen is finally beginning to drop. maybe my temp controller is telling me a different temp than the carboy really is, but I do have the probe in a glass of water in the fridge. Another reason may be I only did a one liter starter and pitched at 72 degrees. rookie mistake.

Mine was fine
Very nice kettle, heats up fast with the included lid, holds heat well. Very sturdy construction with rubber gripped handles, inside gallon marks are nice! Perhaps the only minor improvement would be slightly more readable gallon markers and/or include half gallon steps too for those of us whose eyes have seen better days

Great pot- not cheaply made, nice thick and heavy, worth the money. No complaints!
