Maibock/Helles Bock


This was my first lager after 10 years of homebrewing many many ales. After racking to secondary, I noticed many small bubbles rising to the surface and forming a small head in the carboy (the sort of effect I've seen when dry-hopping), but the airlock remains flat. I fully expect the brew to take months to lager.
