Description

The most compelling stories always have a twist. Barebottle's award-winning Torcido is a Mexican pilsner with a German Helles twist. Combining these styles results in a light and refreshing lager that would make even M. Night Shyamalan do a double take. Originally developed by Barebottle brewer John "Magic" Montes De Oca, Torcido took gold in the 2019 Great American Beer Fest and in turn became the inaugural inductee into the Viking Malt Hall of Fame. Brewed with Viking Pilsner, flaked corn, a dash of Carahell®, and hopped with two additions of Crystal and Saaz.

Barebottle Brewing Company was born in San Francisco, CA with the idea that craft brewing shouldn't adhere to the strict guidelines of established beer styles. Founded by a trio of friends and former classmates, they continue to pay homage to their homebrewing roots by printing a scaled down version of their recipe on every label. If you ever see one of their creations out in the wild, we highly recommend that you buy it, drink it, and then brew it!

Would this work with a higher temp yeast like California Lager yeast or San Francisco? Can’t think of the white labs numbers now...

Instructions don’t say how long to ferment and at what temps. Any help with that?
Will Roldan on May 2, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Hello Will,
Personally, as for my experience, the fermentation process isn't too much different than doing an ale except that the initial start can take a but longer. Regardless, I allow the initial fermentation to go for fourteen days. I fermentation in a conical and rack after seven days or after fermentation action completes whichever is the longest time. After that I keg the lager and put it, uncarbinated of corse, in my keeser for one month at forty degrees Fahrenheit. After that I carbonate the lager and it's ready to drink. I'm sure others will have varied or different ideas but, this seems to work well for me. Please keep in mind that other styles of lagers my need more lagering times. I hope that this helps.
Enjoy
JP
