comment Can Dried yeast function at a low temperature?
this is my first kit and first homebrew.... I'm a complete newby but I spent months researching about it and deciding whether to do it or not and have watched hundreds of youtube videos so do have some knowledge - maybe the yeast was not a lager yeast then! why would they provide the incorrect yeast it just doesn't make sence.... I just persumed yeast was perhaps old and dead.

also if I heated it up how would you recomend doing this stand my bucket in a larger tub of hot water and would the heat not effect the lager as it should be brewed at low temperature...
