I am thinking about making some Mexican-style lager using one of the following kits:
- Coopers Mexican Cerveza
- Bulldog Beer Kit - Cortez Gold Mexican Cerveza
- Better Brew Bandit, Tequila and lime
Now I managed to find the instructions for one of these and it recommends a primary brewing temperature of 20-25 degrees C. This suits me as that is roughly the temperature of my kitchen. These are the questions I have:
- If lager brewing requires a temperature of 7 degrees C, why do these kits suggest a brewing temperature of 20-25?
- Generally speaking its hard to find proper instructions for most lager kits online. If there are no instructions, how do I know what temperature to brew it at (before purchase)? This is a problem for me, as I don't have the facilities to make lager the proper way, so I need to be sure in advance of buying a kit that it is suitable to be brewed at room temperature.
