And yesterday I received an email response to my request a delay in shipping my 2 packs of this yeast. I will be out of town next week, with mail held for 9 days and I did not want this great, fresh bounty sitting warm at the post office. thanks to White Labs for helping me with this. Next month, on to some great lagers!

I could have picked them up for you and put them to good use. Of course I would have brought  you some slurry upon your return!

Really wish this wasn't a limited strain.  I love it!

I'm just getting around to brew with 835 this coming weekend. My first beer will be a German Pils with a firm magnum bittering addition and loads of hallertau mittelfreau at 15 min/flameout

Next will be an IPL since I have a ton of hops sitting in the freezer waiting to be used

I finally brewed with my pouch of Lager X yesterday.  Made a helles:

For 5 gallons:

9 lb Best Heidelberg Pils
1 lb Weyerman Vienna
4 oz Carahell
4 oz acidulated malt (to drop mash pH to 5.2).

1.25 oz Mittelfrueh (75 min)
1 oz Mittelfrueh (5 min)

I made a 1 liter shaken not stirred starter and pitched the whole thing at high krausen.  Had very strong fermentation activity visible less than 12 hours after pitching, which is pretty fast compared to previous lagers I've made.  I really believe in that technique for starters.

Its bubbling away at 52 degrees.  Any suggestion on when I should ramp it up for a d-rest?

Really looking forward to this one.

Shoot, I had signs of fermentation about 4 hours after pitching my starter of Lager X yesterday.

I typically start ramping up the temps to finish and hold around 68F as soon as I observe the krausen starting to drop back into the beer. This lets me know that yeast activity is starting to slow down and can benefit from some warmer temps to keep them chugging along. This is usually around day 5-7 depending on wort OG, pitch rate and type (fresh from starter vs. slurry repitch).
