I had a pilsner in mind but I have this keg of 2124 helles and also an "American Premium" with Bayern already kegged and ready so I need something for the next brewday that is not pale.  An Amber Lager sounds like just the ticket and I don't think I've done a beer like this with Bayern yet.  I will still make the pilsner at some point and finish up with that yeast with my Oktoberfest Lager.  I will probably be brewing this next weekend.

I will add the last two ounces of hops at flameout, put the lid on and just let those hops steep for 10-15 minutes and then start chilling. Is that what some are calling a 'hopstand'? I seem to get a nice, lingering & fresh hop character that way.  Oh yeah, this is in no way "czech' but the calculator didn't have any other amber lager categories.

Looks great. I chill to 170f before adding my WP hops. I feel I get more flavor and resin from them that way. Some disagree.

I accidentally chilled to 170'ish to add my "steeping" hops because after I killed the burner yesterday and went to light a cigar I saw 1.5 ounces of H-Mit sitting on my workbench that was supposed to go in at 5 minutes hahahaa

My upcoming schedule may change so I transferred my pale vienna to a keg last night, chilled it, gelled it and it's carbing now.  I harvested the Bayern and it's sitting in the fridge and I might make this amber lager tomorrow afternoon.  My daughter appears to be ready to move to Austin and start her first real job and she asked me to drive with her, help her move in and then fly back so I may be travelling this SUN thru WED and this amber lager can be fermenting while I'm gone.  Looking forward to this one.

I looked at that recipe a little closer and it looks pretty similar to my Cz session amber. Great minds think alike I guess.

Nice. Brewday was super smooth today and finished up in about 4 hours. Wort looked great and the hops and Bayern should make it righteous.
