Please let me know your thoughts or comments on the process as I enjoy the feedback (preferrable as a comment on the blog post, as its easier to track than there). Thanks!

Slainte!

Great writeup!

Few weeks ago I made my Eisbock.
I condensed a 5 gallon aged and filtered 8.25 %/V Doppelbock down to 2 gallons.
My process does not freeze the beer in a Cornie keg, I use individual 1 gallon plastic containers to watch and control the freezing progress.

Cheers,
ClaudiusB

No

If not, do you notice any oxidation over time?
The beer is only around for two or three weeks after freezing.

Can you give a rundown of how you do it?
The base beer is always a 5 gallon Doppelbock beer, 8-9 %/V.
The beer is fully fermented, aged/conditioned and filtered before the freezing process begins.
The beer is divided into 1 gallon plastic containers and frozen 40-60% depending what I like it to be.
The freezing process is done over night and the remaining liquid is drained into a 2.5 gallon Cornie.
The Eisbock will be force carbonated for a few days and enjoyed with home brewing friends and neighbors.

Cheers,
ClaudiusB
