So I just found out that a non fermenting liguid in a room in my garage stays just over 40 degrees F this time of year. This means that with maybe a towel or two I could keep a beer at lager temperatures couldnt I? Roughly 48 degrees F? Ive never lagered before cause I had never considered it downstairs. Does this sound like a possibility? Does anybody have any information about lagering I’ll need to know aside from it takes more time? Also I would like to put together a lager recipe but all I have ingredient wise is for a brown ale. Would I be able to use a lager yeast on something like that?
It would be
7 lbs pale malt
.50 lbs crystal 60
.50 lbs chocolate malt
.25 lbs special roast
.25 lbs flaked oats
.25 lbs flaked wheat
.50 oz East kent goldings at 45
.50 oz Progress at 45
I was going to use Thames Valley ale yeast but if this beer can turn into a lager I might do that.
Otherwise Ill have to keep it inside where its a little too warm for an ale. Its usually around 68 in my house.
