How long to lager a Czech Pilsner extract?

I’ve been brewing ales for years but I love the pilsners. Help!?!

There are very savvy Lager-peeps here… what I’ve learned from them… very cool and slow…
In a hurry, brew an Ale… (:slight_smile:

I would plan on at least 6 weeks. 8-10 is better. AND- pitch plenty of yeast AND do a d-rest. There’s no cheaper insurance.

I’ve got family coming in October, is there too long a time to lager?

It’ll be fine… think of an Oktoberfest brew, which is a Marzen style… brewed in March and lagered until the big festival… about the end of September… you’ll need to sample a bottle once in a while…
