Hey mate.

With the yeast did you have to do a starter or anything with this or just a direct pitch? Saw the vid of this one but cannot remember.

I read the article on here about lagering and pitching yeast for lagers and wondering if all that was necessary (see link below)

I think I did three packs of yeast, I would not pitch any less than 2, but would even go to 4 at times if the yeast was older. Its very important for lagers to ferment well to do a huge pitch.
A starter is a good thing up to 4L you can start that with one pack of yeast, you'd ferment it out for a few days, can be at 18c or something so its quick, then fridge it, on brewday pull it out the fridge, let it come to room temp, well, let it warm up a bit, pour off 3 or more litres, just to keep the yeast and some liquid to be able to swirl it up and pitch that into your beer. This sort of starter all up probably takes a week, maybe 4 days fermenting and then couple of days in the fridge.
Or just pitch a few packs of yeast.
If you dont the ferment could take 3 weeks more sometimes, and always ramp up the temp at the end to finish off. You just get a much cleaner lager/pilsner with a big pitch theres no real way around it.
Personally I usually pitch about 15 or 16c, wait a few hours till you see the yeast is alive, maybe 6 hours ish, then drop it to ferment temp, I tend to go to the higher end of the recommended temperature, say if it says 9-15c, then I'd probably go 13 or 14c. Leave it there till it drops below 1.020 or when you see the krausen dropping, with a big yeast pitch this can be within a week, then raise it up a few degrees, couple of days, then raise it up a few more degrees, theres your finishing off and diacetyl rest. Before you package just check for sulphur aromas, there will probably always be a little there, but if its really strong, let it go a few more days and it should be good. Cheers!

Cheers mate. Sounds good.

Probably going to try my hand at this recipe once the weather gets a bit warmer.

Hope you and the family are doing well down south with all the lockdown drama and you are still getting time to brew/there's no supply shortages.
