India Pale Lager?
« on: January 26, 2013, 07:11:12 AM »
I've got a wedding to brew for in May, and a nice lager- temp basement at the moment, so would like to try a nice hoppy lager recipe.  Jack's Abbey (Framingham, MA) brews a nice IPL (their designation) - very clean and hoppy.  I'll probably try to contact them too.  But does anyone have any suggestions or recipes they've tried & liked?

Pilsner Urquell is the gold standard of lagers in my opinion.  Most beer stores carry it.  If you haven't tried it yet I'd suggest giving it a go.
I have found many good recipes online by adding the search word "clone" to the name of some commercial product that I like.

I contacted Jack's Abbey & they were kind enough to send me this, but no yeast info yet... I'll keep you posted.

Per Gallon? that's 10 oz each whirlpool, 7.5 ounces each dry
