I spent some time in Germany but never got to try this stuff not sure if they had stopped brewing it by then or not, but a friend who was in many years before me told me of this stuff and that he wanted some. I've searched high and low for any kind of clues to put a recipe together. This is what i've come up with so far, anyone else have more insight to help?
Christmas Seasonal very strong by all reports
Style: Helles or light Bock
Grains probably german pils with some munich or vienna specialties
hops; Hallertauer? maybe Mt.Hood?
I've heard claims of ABV from 6.9% to 18% I think 6.9% is the most accurate.
I'm still kinda new and not set up for all grain yet, so need to figure out an extract (w/steeping grains) way to go about this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Primary: Oktoberfest & Cologne Kolsch
On the Bill: Irish red, experimentals of Ginger beer and Gluten Free Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout and hopefully a Pirminator!
