Vac's Listless Lager
Source: Michael Kovach
Recipe added: 01/05/99
This brew so far has GREAT color and smell. Tasted pretty good when I racked it, too (I can't resist!) I suggest Irish moss to help clear it and I would use a liquid yeast and start the fermentation someplace warm next time (I moved it straight to the cool and it took a long time to get started)
Recipe type: Extract
Batch Size: 5 US Gal
Time in Boil: 1 hour
Primary Fermentation: 7-10 days
Secondary Fermentation: 2 weeks
- 4# Munton's Light DME
- 1# Corn Sugar
- 1# Malto-Dextrine
- 1 oz Hallertau (full boil)
- 1 oz Kent Goldings (finishing-last 10-15 minutes of boil)
- ½ tsp Irish Moss (last 10-15 minutes of boil)
- M&F Lager Yeast (dry)
Siphon into fermenter, aerating well.
Top up to 5 gal w/ water
Pitch yeast and stir well, further aerating.
When fermentation starts, move to 48-52 degree lagering room. One week in primary, at least two in secondary (or rack again in a week, if necessary). Bottle and let condition for at least 2 weeks in lagering room.
: Haven't bottled yet. Would use liq. Yeast next time & add Irish moss. Racked twice.
