This is my first AG batch. I’m attempting a pilsner for my wife.
I’m unable to do real lager temps but after many many videos of people reporting 2124 does okay at higher temps, I decided to try it.
OG was 1.040 or slightly lower.
I didn’t come close to my target 1.050
I pitched 1L starter going for a day on a stir plate.
Fermentation took off right away.
It’s been a week and I think my primary appears to be done.
Going to switch it to a secondary in the next day or two.
Since this is my own recipe I have no idea how long to let it sit in the secondary.
My basement will probably sit at about 58-60 the next few weeks. Maybe occasional dipping to 55 if it cools down.
Also, if I let it sit for 3-4 weeks do I need to add yeast during bottling?
Looking forward to your knowledgeable and conflicting answers.
