Regardless, most people lager their lagers way too long. A doppelbock .... yeah, I can see 6 months on that one. A Marzen, although at one point in time was lagered for 6 months probably needs no more that 6 weeks. But you need to take a taste to see. It could be that at 6 months lagering it is past its prime!
Can I get an AMEN!
AMEN! I usually lager for 4 to 8 weeks depending on the beer. I have found lighter styles (i.e. Helles) don't benefit from a very long lager period.
