  • Strain Profile: Ferment a Lager FAST. One week fermentation at room temperature, another week for lagering at 2°C, and its ready for drinking. PLEASE NOTE: This beer is not called ‘Under Pressure’ for nothing. Fermentation and condition needs to occur at 1 bar (15 PSI), so get a fermentor that can hold pressure (https://www.morebeer.com/products/fermentasaurus-pressure-kit.html). Fermentation under pressure allows for the production of a clean flavor profile by reducing ester and fusel alcohol production, even when fermenting at high temperatures. Fermenting under pressure also reduces the chances of oxidation and carbonates the beer during fermentation.
