No, you can see the warped tree line.
Behind it, I thought maybe. Mt. Hood?

I have now bottled a full batch (yuck) of lager using this approach, and they were fully carbed 8 days after bottling. At 12 days I put them into the lagering chamber at 2°C where they'll live until needed. Several have already been given away after 1.5 weeks of lagering.

Also, it was 55°F and sunny here in the Rockies at 11,000 ft. Double yuck.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Now I want to try an Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel.  It is snowing here and have about 4".  The entire area is virtually closed or I would go get one... lol.  The raisin comments are interesting.  Learn something new everyday.  Nice looking lager by the way.  Going to have to shovel snow from the brewing area if I'm brewing Sat and Sun.  I bought 3 lager strains to try.  I'd like to find one suitable for several styles.  I guess it makes sense to plan ahead in order harvest and re-pitch.  Do you usually stay with the same lager strain?

I have so far. But kind of just getting started.  I might try something different next time.

Any guess as to what is in the Krug in my Avatar?  ;)

I remember it being the Dunkel. I could be wrong as we had several Ayinger beers at lunch.
