I put 1-3 oz. in the serving keg and leave it there til the beer is gone, 2-3 months.

submersed or tied off at certain level so beer level falls below hop bag?  just curious as depending on how long your consumption period is. Ive even gone back in with another couple ounces for few days to add more aroma...but always just pull the bag.

BTW what are readily available commercial examples of a dort and german pils?


Dort Lager- Great Lakes Dortmunder (maltier version), DAB from Germany (hoppier version).

German Pils - readily available ones, SN Nooner (good), Firestone Walker Pivo Pils (great).


There are others. Most or all of these should be readily available.

König, Bitburger, Jever, Trumer are all in the German Pils category.

bet you can find Weihenstephaner Pilsner in your specialty / craft section of grocery or beer store. its a really good classic german pils.

+1 temp control. My basement is natural temp control for ales. stays at 60F and depending on where I put carboy, I can add temp or subtract temp very easily.

for lagers and cooler yeast ales, love my freezer with johnson controls.

Ken, do you also drop your pH in the kettle to 5.2ish? And also with about a .5mL lactic/phophoric per pound of grist?

I have been on pale lagers.
