I brewed this a while ago and it's been aging and carbing in a keg for a few weeks. I tried a sample this evening and it turned out great!
Thanks!

Is the wyeast 2124 a beast or something? It fermented out in only 7 days (1.054 to 1012). I guess I just expected it to take at least another week. It's my first lager, so I didn't know what to expect. It tastes great without taking back up to 60, but I'm going to do it.

Right now, it is pretty roasty like you said. It's not as malty as I expected due to the FG ending a little lower than I expected. Overall, it has a very clean taste to it. I can tell that it's going to be great with some age on it. Good session beer.

A week's not uncommon if you pitch a healthy amount of yeast and aerate well.

Final review: It's been aging for 3 months now and it's damn good. When it was young, it tasted like a very clean stout or porter. Now, it's mellowed out. The german flavor has come through. Still has a very slight roasted taste, but very clean, crisp, and remarkably light tasting for the black color. I'll be making it again or try the other version listed.

Excellent Fal! Glad you're enjoying it. The one I have on tap now is 9 months old (kept near freezing) and taste just like how you describe it.

Has anyone given this a shot using 34/70? I have always used WLP-830 for my Schwarzbier but recently started buying dry yeast in bulk and figured I would give it a go.

I think it would work well! Both are very clean and crisp and they're said to even be the same strain.

Thumbs up! Enjoy the beer! (And who doesn't like a chicken dinner! Looking forward to getting the rotisserie going again but that's completely off topic...)

P.S. Not surprised that Saflager 34/70 would have worked out well as it's reported to be the same strain as WLP830 (as mentioned previously).

I leave you with this video of my rotisserie chicken being doused with beer: https://www.instagram.com/p/BEmUYs7oKjJ/
