Very cool work! I'm glad I was able to be a data point.

I'm teaching class at the LHBS Thursday, and I always get asked by beginners about doing lagers. I'be been recommending using San Diego Super yeast, but I might mention this work (if it comes up, but it probably will).

If I'd known you were taking pictures I'd have turned around!

Fortunately, he caught me with my eyes closed and swirling beer around in my mouth. That's about as good as I ever look.

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

Great experiment! I wonder if the lagering time plays a role in reducing any effects from warm lager fermentation? Maybe if the warm pitch was kept at ale temps throughout it would of been different results?

I know I've produced some decent lagers in the past fermenting San Fran and Bohemian Lager at ale temps but I always lagered for a month before tapping.
