HONEY GINGER LAGER
« on: February 05, 2010, 04:10:39 PM »
MMMMMM In the secondary, had to sample during the transfer. Dry but very cloudy. This normal for a lager ???...My first attempt.
By the way thanks to you all for the advice...Think I'll have a winner.

My typical Lager takes almost three times as long in the primary than an ale. Couple questions.

How long was it in the primary?
What temp?
What was the FG?

Usually they start to clear after about 3-4 weeks in the primary.

Cheers

TWO MONTHS LATER...NOW WE'RE TALKING HOMEBREW!
Turned out spectacular...though next time I will go from 3oz grated ginger to 6oz.
Nice mouth feel, good head retention and a really clean finish.
And the clouds?!? Parted like a Spring sky  ;D
