Brewing more lagers is a great goal. Good time of year to do it. You'll have some great beer in the spring.

2 hour boil huh, wow!

I like the WY2206. Made a German Schwartbier once and a couple of Vienna Lagers with it.

Very cool.

The 2 hours (and aggressive) boil was mostly for color and mallard reaction
I also used 2206 in the past for a schwartbier and a rauchbier with very good results.  A vienna lager is on my “to brew soon” list
