"Lager Lout".... [rofl] sure I've seen that recipe somewhere dude 😋  Glad it does the business for ya; as it stands, im about the only person on the globe not to brew it [rofl]
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Haha one day you must surely brew it! Cheers for sharing the recipe though it’s come out very nice, unfortunately the wife has taken a shine to it too so it won’t last [rofl]

When doing a shorter boil do you make adjustments for the shorter bittering and flavouring time, ie add more hops? and when would you add what were previously with a 60 min boil the 15 mins additions...at 5 mins?

Yes for the bittering addition (if you have one at 60) you will need to increase the quantity as it can only go in at 30m but everything after that can go in at the normal timings.

I use hop bags now, so i can whip the hops out at the end of the short boil, to avoid excess bitterness.

Would you double the bittering amount? as its only in for half the time, or what?

I use Brewmate software to calc the hops, but it's approx half, yes.

Has anyone other than Dude fermented a lager at ale temperatures? If so, how did it work out?

Not noticed any difference what so ever tbh, only use the brew fridge now to keep the keg at serving temperatures, another thing I have to go and collect 😂

There we are, we have it from steve, lager yeasts dont need to be fermented cool. It's a myth. Maybe they were just used in caves to avoid the excess heat of summer?
