Wow! The Texas Bock I recipe that I've seen shows that to be a pretty big beer. OG of 1.094 and ABV of 9.6%. Which yeast did you pick up for this one? Let us know how it comes out.

Welcome to the club!!! I just started brewing this year and I can't believe how great the beer I make tastes. I can't make enough...all my friends drink it as fast as I can bottle it!

Keep us posted.

Well actually Texas sucks, but since we're all stuck here, and apparently aren't free to leave, then it's certainly OK to convince ourselves that "sucks" is really "rules".

Is your Texas bock a Shiner Bock clone?
