Default Optimator-Spaten Munich

Anyone have a recipe that would closely duplicate Optimator-Spaten Munich. Tried it last night. A really great beer. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It's a Doppel Bock (Double Bock). There should be a lot or recipes floating around...check Clone Brews and Brew European Brews at Home...I'm at work right now so I can't help any more than that.

This is certainly on my list of clones to brew, but I have a big list.

Let us know what you are able to locate.

I saw them selling it at Germany in EPCOT when I was there in June and I couldn't believe the sign, I had to read it two or three times before I believed it. My wife's uncle kept saying "now this is a good beer" with every sip.

There's a recipe for it in Beer Captured. I like it a lot, too, and am using it as a basis for my Obfuscator. It's a damn fine doppelbock.

Being a doppelbock, it's a lager, so be prepared for that sort of temperature control. High gravity brewing + lagering temps = many months of fermentation & conditioning.
