St. Nick's Slick Christmas Lager
Source: Drew Avis
Recipe added: 02/03/97
Very smooth, golden lager with a malty sweetness despite the
maltose. Fermented surprisingly fast, and was terrific within
4 weeks of starting. I had a constant temp of about ~45 which
probably really smoothed out the beer.
Recipe type: Extract
Batch Size: 23 l
Starting Gravity: 1045
Finishing Gravity: 1005
Time in Boil: 60 min
Primary Fermentation: 8 days
Secondary Fermentation: 11 days
Additional Fermentation: 2 weeks
- 1.7 KG Cooper's Real Ale kit
- 1 KG Maltose liquid
- 500 gr dry malt extract (light)
- 50 gr Saaz hops
- Wyeast #2035 (American Lager)
Boil for 60 minutes, adding 25gr hops at the 20 min mark,
and 25gr for the last minute. Strain, cool, and transfer to
primary. Add water up to 23l.
I didn't use a starter with this yeast, and it worked
great, but a starter might improve performance even more.
My fermentation was at ~45 because of a cold snap. Worked
great. After the fermentation was complete, the temp dropped
even lower, and the beer turned crystal clear.
