Great clarity, Wort-H.O.G.!
What did you do to get that to drop so clear in only a month?
Which yeast did you use?

Do you subscribe to that 'new' lager process, where you pitch cold then warm it up in a controlled temper ascent so it finishes faster than 'traditional' lagers?  Mike McDole is a big proponent of that technique, but I'm not sure what effect that has on flocculation.

Hard to tell the color in that glass from that pic. The bottom looks like bright gold and the top borders on amber.  The lighting plays tricks, too. 

Looks great, though.  Nice job

yes i use the accelerated schedule. pitch 46ish, hold about 49-50 until around 60-65% attenuated, let it rise up to around 62F and hold about 6 days or so there. im now on about day 14, then cold crash a few days before transferring to keg with gelatin. that rests a few days and then begin carbonation.  so from start to finish, about 3-4 weeks ready to drink.

color really is golden yellow around 4 srm i think. yeast was wlp835 on this one, although get same with 830, 833.

"Das ist Gut" German Pils (lagered 7 weeks)



"Helles for Heroes" Munich Helles (lagered just under 4 weeks) - needs more time to clear'



Both taste great!  Tomorrow I start lagering another 10 gal of the same G Pils!

Steve, scroll back to the photo of my last Helles in the bottling bucket. That was Wyeast Munich Lager, pitched at 48 and stepped up 1° per day to 68°. At TG I crashed to 30° After a couple days I pitched gelatin and left it for a week.

That brew looks delicious with some nice, sticky hop lacing to boot!  What time does your bar close down?

That's what I like to see... six or seven sips out of that glass....
