Thanks for answering my questions! I have three books I reference too, but the Lager process is "vague". Dave Miller's: Homebrewing Guide; Palmer: How To Brew; Papazian: Complete Joy of Brewing.
I ordered Gregory Noonan's book: New Brewing Lager Beer, is this a good reference for the Lager brewing?
Miller's book is so far out of date that I'd just skip it. Palmer's is excellent and kind of considered the "bible" of contemporary homebrewing. Papazian has a great, friendly writing style and is generally good, but Palmer should be all you need. Noonan's book is very technical and aimed more at commercial brewing that homebrewers, really. And be sure to pay attention to what majorvices posted. Lager brewing takes more skill, equipment and time than ale brewing, so it may not be what you want to jump into to begin brewing.
