Session Notes
Yeast Strain(s) Used: WL 940 Mexican Lager Yeast
Fermentaion Temp: 52F
MEXICAN LAGER: Mash at 146*/30 minutes; raise temp to 152*/30minutes(or 45); sparge. Boil 60 min and add hops, yeast nutriant. Pitch yeast (make starters ahead of time) @ room temp, then one day later, begin primary for 8days @ 52*. Yeast rest for 7days @ 65*. I transfer to Cornys and Lager 3 months near 32*. No priming necessary. Excellent Dos Equis Amber clone, well worth the time. Salude!
