I did a simular recipe over the weekend with redx instead of munich and my current lager strain.

Interesting, couldn’t get a hold of it. I might make another one with Spalter one day to see the difference.

Spalter Select is easy to source over here, but true Spalter is more difficult to find.

Treat it as you would any lager, like a dunkel. I generally wait a month, but they can last 3-6 months depending on the flow of the beer pipeline.

I ferment in a plastic bucket, so will it be better to let it mature in the bottle? Maybe better against oxygen ingress?
