  7. Preparation: For my starter i used WLP838 Southern Lager yeast with a half gal of Starting wort (sg: 1.045). Once this started fermenting I dropped the temperature down so it would be starting at the same temp as the lager. Pitched cold.

  9. Fermentation: For your secondary/lager, bring the temp. down to 34F and let this sit for 6 weeks.

Recipe Notes

75 minute boil just to drive off DMS from pilsner (and possibly get a little extra color)...I didint feel like 90 minutes was nessesary here.
