I haven't tried it, but here is Jamil's recipe...

Mr. Maltinator
OG: 1.086
FG: 1.020
IBU: 24
Color: 18 SRM
ABV: 8.7%
Mash @ 155
Bassed on pre-boil volume of 7 gallons, and an efficiency of 70%.

14lbs Munich Malt
4lbs Pilsner Malt
2lbs CaraMunich

1.5oz Hallertau 4.0% AA 60min
0.5oz Hallertau 4.0% AA 30min

WLP833/WYeast 2206
Brewed this up last night. I did a decoction mashout to get some extra melanoidens... Chilled to 46 and pitched a 6L starter of 2206. Really excited to try this one. My first lager, so I can't help but stare at my carboy devoid of any activity and worry like an ale brewer...

This is funny, I just sat down with my computer and a Spaten Optimator and the 3rd thread in the cue was this one! I love this beer!

Cheers
Jay
