Belgian Lager

Recommended Posts

I'm now brewing the Belgian Lager.

It has dropped into fermentation mode and is currently running at 12 degrees. My last brew, American Pale Ale, went at 18 degrees.

this seems like a large discrepancy, is it correct?

Yeah that is correct. Lagers are brewed at a bit lower temperature than Ales.

If you started the brew by selecting and starting the BrewPrint from the app then it should have all the correct settings.

That's ok Pursya, that's what this forum is for.

Hope the Belgian Lager turns out nice, I have one which I am planning on brewing sometime soon.

Yeah fermentation temperature is selected based on the type of yeast that is being used.  Lager yeasts like it colder around 12, while ale yeasts like it warmer typically 16 - 18.  Then there is Saison yeast which loves even QLD summer ambient room temps, that's what has been going into my non-droid fermenters lately.
