Subject: my first lager
Date: 1992-03-12 22:21:41 GMT

Hello homebrewers. I am brewing my first lager today (my third
brew altogether). I will be following Papazian's Dr. Bock
recipe. I have several questions:

(1) Do I pitch at 78 degrees?

(2) will blowoff begin around 12 hours after pitching like
ale?

(3) will blowoff last around the same amount of time as ale?

(4) How do I know when fermentation is complete? With the
ales that I have brewed I waited until at least 2 minutes
elapsed between bubbles through the fermentation lock.

Any other comments on the differences between brewing ales
and lagers will be appreciated.

(I know, "relax, have a homebrew")

thanks in advance,

Doug Kolb
