Batz Far Kin Lager.. Typical Aussie (Pub Beer)

Lager - American Lager
All Grain
* * * * * 7 Votes

Brewer's Notes

The recipe base does not have Australian Lager so I just picked a US lager. This is not a US lager but a typical Aussie lager that ' I don't like home brew drinkers will enjoy. Start them on this the show them how beers can be brewed.I used Galaxy Malt but just use BB Pale. Lately I have used Super Pride instead of Pride Of Ringwood, it's an improvement.
The beer is not as light coloured as is shown in the DB.

Batz,

Are you a Chill or No Chill man as we might need to take this into consideration.

Mash at 65 - 66?

Glad it turned out well for you, I've never served it to a mega swiller who didn't like it. To tell the truth I enjoy it on a hot day as well ;)
Easy as recipe to boot.

I'm planning on brewing this on the weekend :)

Using "Australian Pilsner" (75%) and "Australian Ale" (25%) with the Saflager S-189 yeast.
For my hop bill, I'm using 40% POR @ 60 minutes and 60% Sterling @ 15 minutes.

You've written above that you ferment at 15C, I assume this is for the first week, do you do the same temperature for the second week, or colder?
At what temp are you storing the lager at for the conditioning? Also, I'll be bottling, is the conditioning time for a keg?

Looking forward to trying this one out, I don't mind a good crisp lager in between heavy hopped IPAs :drinks:

Cheers
Martin

Hey guys,

I brewed up my batch this evening, and hit 77% efficiency, up 7% since adding my new false bottom which was a trial run today too. I've been running a BIAB bag in my mash tun, pulling it out and what not, happy with the change :D
Gotta say, the beer is looking promising, and I can't wait to serve it up to my megaswill loving mates, as well as having a few good drinks myself ;)

I did a no chill, in a hop sock, and I'll be pitching yeast tomorrow morning. That way, I'll hopefully be able to serve a few beers up for my father in law too, who is coming down to visit in a couple of weeks.
I think I'll be fermenting at 14C, feels more like a lager at that temperature, 10 days is what I normally do for my ales, I'll probably follow that schedule, unless someone can recommend otherwise? I'll keep an eye on the gravity anyway ;)

Cheers
Martin
