Excellent
My first lager. Used a more contemporary fermentation, started about 54 until evidence of fermentation. Then down to 48 until krausen just started to subside. Then ramp up 2 degrees a day until 68. Heard this on BN from Tasty McDole. I was very pleased with the results. Used rehydrated Saflager 23 AND 34/70. Had some esters from over pitching. Will definitely brew this again. My beer was more towards the Export strength.

Pretty Close to the Real Deal
I've brewed this kit twice, with bottles and kegs, and the results were very close to a traditional German pilsner! The reason I didn't give it 5-stars is that the flavor is a little more hoppy than I'd prefer.
