California Common Results

A review of my California Common homebrew! This was my first lager I brewed at the new house using the old school method of lagering - my basement! I don’t have a cooling method built that keeps the temperature at 55F for general lager fermentation, but I do have a basement section that stays pretty constant at 56F to 57F over the winter. [wp_ad_camp_1] In the video I mentioned that I got this base recipe from This site is invaluable to me and I use it a lot for keeping track of my brew session to interacting with other homebrewers on their forums.
