You lost me on the logic here. Besides, the why of a secondary vessel...why earlier?
Are you lagering in the secondary?
Is it this pils?
In going to make my first Pils today.
8.75 lbs Bohemian Pilsner
1 lb Carapils
1oz Tettnanger 60min
2oz Saaz 30min
1oz Saaz 10min
1oz Saaz flame out
2 packets of 34/70
I'm not a fan of 34/70 as some of the guys here know. I've had similar experience with it first pitch...seemed sluggish and lazy as I recall. Didn't reach a gravity I'd hoped or planned for. Turned out like a nice mouthy if helles i really enjoyed but not my pils. A little too flabbyl
Wyeast has urquell yeast available right now in limited quantity and for limited time. I lost my collection of urquell slurry to a fridge/controller error back in the summer. My LHBS ordered some for me. Hope to have it next week to make up a few liters of starter.
Right now I'm enjoying the pils from bav lager yeast. This one was 1.011 before lagering. Didn't take a reading but it generally drops another point or two after lagering. I mashed at 149.
I hear 34/70 performs better on successive pitches. I never got that far. Second pitch didn't impress either.
