I currently have a NB Czech Pilsner Lager that has been in Primary for 2 weeks. Due to the crazy spring temps the beer temp has gone up about a degree a day from 48 to and is now sitting at 60. I think its ok so far and I am going to let it sit at 60 for a couple of days and let it D-rest.
Here is my question/problem. This is my 2nd lager. The first, a Bock has been lagering at 37 in my freezer for about a week. My preliminary plan is to lower the freezer to 33 for a couple of days, wrap a blanket around the bock to insulate it the best I can then raise the Freezer temp to about 55 before putting in the Czech, then lowering it 4 degrees a day until it is back at 37. Anyone see a problem with this other than warming up the keg of Klosch that is also in there so it is too warm to drink for a couple of days? Or should I just leave the freezer at 37 and throw in the Czech and hope for the best? The reviews on the NB website seem to indicate it is pretty forgiving for a lager. The other option I guess would be some sort of swamp cooler setup to lower the Czech temp.
Thanks in Advance
