Sounds good Grainer. What was your fermentation and lagering schedule?

I fermented at 11-12 DegC from memory and then when nearly at full ferment I raised the temp slowly (1 degree a day) to 19 DegC for a few days then back down a degree or 2 every day to 1 DegC.. It then needed at a minimum of 1 month to lager before it started to mellow out and come into its own.
