So Lagers – tell me more about that?
To recap – lagers use a lager yeast, ferment at lower temperatures and for longer (compared to ales) and get their name by being stored for a period of time (kind of like wine).
So are there different sorts of lagers? Why yes. The major types include Pilsener, American lager, German lager and European lager. Examples of well known lagers include Stella, Beck’s and Asahi.
A really useful diagram which shows how all these styles relate is at the below link:
With a Bohemian Pilsener fermenting and active investigation into this whole cave thing, Oktoberfest could be on the cards at the brewery!
Cave well, cave often.
