Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps please?

Got my next brew ingredients ordered up…a RED LAGER. My first lager!
Got an 02 stone to go with my medical 02 regulator I just won on ebay. Along with my temperature controller, this should be a big jump in beer quality and types of beers I can brew. I plan on slowly stepping the size of my lagers up until I reach Doppelbocks.

Doesn’t that look like a great beer to wash down a packet of crisps?

So the near future holds my Wit and the Red Lager. Then I need to use up the extra hops I have: Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, and a bunch of homegrown hops. I’m thinking IPA or DIPA.
