  1. Creeps, I fermented at 55 degrees for four weeks in a cooler (before I got my fridge) and then bottled and lagered at 55 degrees in the fridge for another two months. I am planning on using the fridge to keep my other IPA's cold and ready to drink. Just not sure if the Dortmunder has to stay at 55 degrees once lagering is complete.
  2. My Dortmunder Seasonal has now lagered for two months at 55 degrees in my mini fridge. My question is, can I remove from fridge and continue to condition in my basement or do I need to keep at 55 degrees. Thanks in advance.
  3. I bought a mini fridge and Inkbird temp controller to lager my Dortmunder. Does anyone have any ideas how to get the temperature probe into the fridge without breaking the seal on the door? Any advice would be appreciated!
  4. What size is the mini fridge in this post (cubic feet)? I am currently looking for one that will hold at least two LBK's.
  5. I just had to throw out one of my LBKs (also Target clearance, Rick B.) because I could not get it to stop leaking at the seam. I used Exacto knife and a file but nothing worked. Now down to three LBKs...very frustrating indeed.
  6. Thanks to all for your helpful advice. I plan to get the temperature controller, along with the fridge, to ferment and condition these lagers that require lower temperatures. Hopefully the flip cooler and frozen water bottles will suffice in the meantime...I am really anxious to make this Dortmunder!
  7. Hello All, I am looking for suggestions on fermenting the Dortmunder Seasonal Lager (cold) in a cooler using frozen water bottles. Has anyone done this successfully keeping the temperature around 55 degrees? I plan to get a second refrigerator in the future to make this easier. Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated...
