Yesterday (Saturday), I brewed my first lager, a 10 gallon batch of Dortmunder Export. My efficiency was lower than normal so I fell a tad (.005) points short of my planned O.G.. I had some trouble with my Barley Crusher (several times it just started "free spinning" and not pulling grain through); I attribute the reduced efficiency (70% instead of 78%) to that. But the wort looked, smelled and tasted really good. I have a fermentation freezer that I've set to 44 and will let the temp rise over the coming days. I brewed the Dortmunder so I can build up a good yeast slurry of WLP833 for my next lager: a Helles Bock.
