    S-23 is a very nice yeast and you should get a fairly clean beer out of it at 15C, 34/70 would have been a better choice if you had to ferment around 15C and higher but Its great that you didn't ferment warmer.

    34/70 brought out the malts a bit better for me. I did a side by side on a Lite Lager sometime ago but cant remember where I posted it.

    Good luck on Lagering it for 3 or 4 months. Send me a six pack Ill look after it for you

    LOL unfortunately for me, I only have 11l in this batch. That means a 4.5l portion of it will go into a mini keg, and the rest will be bottled. Doing the testing thing once in a while means the ~12 bottles I'll get from it won't last long. I'll store one or two for a while, but I suspect the rest will go quickly. I'm pretty bummed, because how the taste even thus far is, but at least I know now how great this simple recipe actually is. Definitely making it again!

    Been doing some reading up on lagers given that I am due to be using my first lager(ish) yeast soon too. Interesting take on the sometimes quite heated 'What's a lager' debate
