18 days at 1C would sound about right to me. Never hurts to go longer but it should be ready in that time.

Let the lager experts speak up and cite sources on this one. I only know what I've read and don't have much experience on these.


In the past I've  gone with 7 days per 2 degrees plato with a fridge that struggled to get below 3oC. I'm no medal winning lager brewer but I got 30 with a brew done that way. I'll give it 24 days (4 x 6) and put it down as an experiment if it sucks.

Set another one off today in the new conical, god bless this ship etc.
Had a mare trying to get temp down and using immersion chiller even with whirlpool, wouldn't budge below 19, water temp was 12, in end filled 36l into conical and let the fridge do the last hard bit.
You can see where I pitched with the fridge door open at just under 14, its already at 12 now so no damage done.
Gas mark 7 and keg in August :).

Definite diacetyl, particularly at higher temps but it's a Czech dark style so not a big deal - kind of like the diacetyl in  GFES. Maybe not got the depth of a proper lager but not sure. Will try again with a German yeast and a more pilsy grain bill and will report back.

Happily bubbling away +\- 0.04 of a degree and a small squirt of fan and fridge every hour.
