Default Brewing a Maibock

I'm going to be making this tomorrow. I had to make due with the type of hops but any help on the schedule would be appreciated.

Any other suggestions? Different yeast maybe? Any additives?


Maelstrom Maibock

9# German Pils LME
1# Munich Malt
.5# Carapils Malt

1oz Sterling Pellets (6.0%) @ 60 min
1oz Perle Pellets (8.0%) @ 30 min
1oz Perle Pellets (8.0%) @ 10 min

SAFLAGER S-23 Lager Yeast



Thanks much.

I've never used that yeast, but that might be pretty hoppy for a maibock. I would nix the 30 and 10 minute additions and maybe add one 20 minute addition. That's just me though.

Makes sense. You think maybe 3/4 oz @ 60 and 1oz @20?

I would probably do 1 oz. @ 60 minutes and 1/2-1 oz. @ 20 minutes - Maibocks are on the higher end gravity wise, so you'll want some good balance for that. I didn't put those additions into a program to figure IBUs, but when I did my Maibock I did one 0.6 oz. addition of 13.1% Magnum at 60 minutes. It looks like your additions should probably end up about the same IBU-wise.

Personally, I'd have a little bit more Munich in there, but unless you're partially mashing, that's kinda tough to do (Munich really does need to be mashed, not just steeped). Alternatively, you can get a Munich liquid extract. Maibocks are often closer to ~2/3 Pils, 1/3 Munich.

I'd drop all hop additions except for the bittering addition.

I was thinking the same thing until I realized it's a PM. I've never used the Munich liquid extract, but I hear it works great. I did 30% Munich in mine.

I'd definitely be steeping so something along the lines of...

6# German Pils LME
3# Munich Malt LME

.5# Carapils (steeped)

1oz Perle (8.0%) @ 60min.

That's it?

I bet that'd be tasty. I'd probably be shooting for around 25 IBUs, maybe a little more or less depending on the gravity.

Some hop flavor is ok in Maibocks, so you have to see for yourself.

I concur with the Pilsner/Munich. This will be nice. Make sure you pitch enough yeast and try to ferment below 50 *F. Bocks are notorious for creating higher alcohols but you don't want them as this makes the beer taste less smooth.
