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
Starting Gravity:
Finishing Gravity:
Time in Boil: 1 hour
Primary Fermentation: 7-10 days
Secondary Fermentation: 2 weeks



Boil-cool quick. 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.
