Austin Pils uses  Saflager W34/70 Yeast and ferments cold. I have completed that and am almost thru the carbonation phase at 70F+. Do I then treat it as a Lager and condition in the fridge?

 

Thanks

I just bottled an octoberfest fermented as a lager. Does it have to be carbonated at the higher temps (70+)? The yeast worked for fermenting in the low 50"s.Will it work for carbonating in the 50"s?

Thanks for the responses, would it be safe to say that any recipe that includes instructions to ferment cold (around 55F) would then also condition cold?  I ask because I have a few in the schedule over the next couple months.

After years of research before even starting my homebrewing habit I offer this to you from my own personal experience. For a lager, begin fermentation in the mid to low 50's. After two weeks raise the temperature to low 60's for at least a week. Essentially, lagering is similar to a cold crash but done gradually. After a week in the 34 to 40 degree range, bottle your lager, carbonate and condition in the low 60's .
