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.

Next up: maybe a Helles or a Brown Ale.

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.
