S-23
« on: February 22, 2013, 01:23:49 PM »
I assume that when I pitch my S-23 Lager yeast into my lager that I will need to chill the wort to 11-15 C before pitching?  I am used to ale yeasts and usually only cool to 18 C or so.

First, make sure you only need 1 packet. I suspect you'll need 2 or 3 to get the right cell count.  Next, according to that book you're using, you should chill the wort to 10C overnight, rack to a new carboy (to remove the trub) and pitch cold.  Ferment for 4 weeks at 10C, then lager for 4 weeks at 0C
