In 25 years of brewing, this is only the second time I’ve ever used lager yeast! I was concerned that not being able to maintain a consistently low temperature might be a problem, but it wasn’t at all. I aged this for two months before bottling, and it tastes great. Basically a dark lager with some spices in it. The tea adds extra tannins, so 1 oz of a low-alpha hop is plenty.
