now with the weather cooling down,
i cant ferment ales out side of my heater box.
was brewing an ale a week before my holidays.
durning the warmer months, the ales ferment at 18-20 degrees.
and its not cold enough for brewing lagers in my fermentation room.
(also know as the stoarage area under the house)

i'm after a steam/califonia common beer recipe
so i can brew without the aid of my heater box
freeing it up for ales.

not having tasted this style of beer, what should its characteristics be?

planning on using the Wyeast 2112 California Lager yeast (14-20 degrees)
what differences does this yeast impart on the brew at each end of the fermentation temps.

cheers
