Alright guys I need a bit of pitching rate guidance. I’m thinking of using Munich Lager II, which states a ferm temp of 52 to 62 F. As far as I’m concerned, this is pretty much ale territory. When comparing pitch rates on Mr Malty, would you figure this as a hybrid or lager type ferm?
I do understand I will lager this post ferm, but I won’t ferment at low to high 40’s as other lager strains. Would an ale type pitch rate work in this case?
The beer will be a maibock at 1.064 gravity.
At this temp to me it would seem excessive to pitch at the typical lager rate, which from what I understand is typically done to ensure proper fermentation due to such a low starting temp.
