    4. Liquid product now known as "lager"

    paging JessKidden, paging JessKidden, please pick up the white courtesy phone and explain what this means.

    I am pretty sure that nowadays we would still call this "wort", just wondering if there is some context as to why it would be called "lager"
    Providence and dfillius like this.
