    I am having problems with my larger I brewed it waited until fermentation stopped the bottled and put it into a cold place straight away (which I do not think I should of done ) I went to open a bottle it was fizzy but no nice head. I remember when I brewd the the same beer last year it was great and everybody how great it was it was the Wilko Lager Pils and it was great. But this I do not know what has gone wrong. What I have done was got the bottles out the fridge shaken the sediment that seemed to liven them up a bit it seemed to show more froth in the bottle. now leaving the them in the warm will that do the trick? of is it just a case of bottling it to early or putting them in the fridge to soon I did wait until the beer had cleared before I put them in the fridge. The yeast I used was for Lagers and it was SafAle S33

    So after bottling you put it somewhere cold.

    That would be your problem. It will need somewhere warmer to carb properly.

    From what I can see online, S33 is an ale yeast rather than a lager yeast so it’ll need to be kept warm for fermenting and carbonating!
