Default Need Input on a Recipe!

I am working on a traditional Bock recipe. I am wanting opinions and suggestions. This is what I have come up with so far.

I am a partial masher, so the recipe is set for that method.

6.6 lbs Pilsner Liquid Extract
2 lbs aromatic malt
1 lbs crystal malt 40L
1 3/4 Munich Malt

1 oz Cascade Hops for 60 min
3/4 oz Cascade Hops at 30 min
1/2 oz Amarillo Hops at 15 min for aroma

Wyeast Belgian Abbey II Yeast

Any thoughts?



Sorry, this is not my Bock recipe. It is a recipe I have been toying with. I know it does fit a defined recipe, but I wanted to brew a beer with some of the things I like see what see what I get.

Here is my Bock recipe I wanted input in. I have never brewed a bock before, drank many though.

7.5 lbs amber dry extract
2 lbs crystal malt 10L
2 lbs Munich malt
1/2 lb Carafa
1.5 oz Spalter for 60 minutes
0.5 oz Hallertauer for 15 minutes
Old Bavarian Lager yeast

WHat do you think? Does this work for a Bock?


If you have any input on the experimental recipe, let me know

"Traditional Bock"

"Amarillo Hops"

"Belgian Abbey II Yeast"

This might make a tasty beer, but it is no bock. Bocks are a low (nobel) hopped German lager, currently you have an Amero-Belgi-Something.
