giving an American Lager a go
« on: June 02, 2017, 08:50:49 PM »
Going to be a biab as this is my first all-grain batch.

6# ameircan 2 row  mash
2# pale ale malt (avangard german)  mash
1# carapils (muntons british)  10 min boil
3 tsp yeast nutrient  10 min

.25oz galena  60min
.25oz liberty  15 min
.25oz liberty  5 min

safale us-05

5.5 gal batch
strike 3gal@167deg
mash 60 min @ 155deg
sparge w/168deg to 6.6 gal volume then begin boil.

not sure if I'm going to ferment on the low end 53deg or the high end 77deg.

Hi there!
Welcome to the all-grain club. It's so much fun!

Just my 2 cents on the recipe:
1. Don't boil the Cara Pils add them to the mash instead.
2. 3 tsp of yeast nutrient won't probably hurt anything but I'm using about half a tsp.
3. It won't be a lager if you use an ale yeast like the us-05. Maybe use Safale s-23 instead.
4. I would mash a little lower than that.

Cheers / DrHans

Welcome to the looney farm.

Good tips above.

I might opt for the Saflager w 34/70 instead as that allegedly is more forgiving towards higher temps. If you insist on using an ale yeast, just call it a lagale and all is bliss ;)

Happy brewing, cheers'n 17!

Thanks for the input. Dr Hans, I did use the carapils in the mash, not sure why I said boil.

Beerymore, I had the us-05 laying around and I'm fermenting it at 60 deg.
Next up: maybe a Helles or a Brown Ale.

In that case you'll get rather close to a true lager. Just remember to give primary fermentation plenty of time as the yeast may work a bit slower than your typical room temp.
