Default All-Grain - Black Magic Lager

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Fermentis S-23
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: Fermentis S-23
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.049
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 25.8
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 29.4
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 5 Days @ 50F
Additional Fermentation: 4 Weeks @ 34F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 Days @ 60F
Tasting Notes: Very rich flavor, light roastiness, aroma almost like a root beer

I was very happy with this, and it's about to become my house lager. When I first kegged it, I was thinking that it might be short on chocolate malt. However, after carbing up, it is just right. A very light roast flavor, but still has that crisp tendency of a lager. Big mouthfeel, might try mashing a couple degrees lower next time. I'm thinking that the dark malt combination here might be right for a Black IPA, and I'll be trying that in the near future

8 lbs Munich
8 ozs Carafa III
4 ozs Cararoma
2 ozs Chocolate Wheat
2 ozs Chocolate Malt

60 min mash @ 152F
10 min mashout @ 168F

1.75 ozs Spalt @ 60 mins
0.25 ozs Spalt @ 10 mins

2 packs Fermentis SafLager S-23 sprinkled onto wort @ 48F

~5 days @ 50F
@ 1.015 increase to 60F
1 week @ 60F
4 weeks @ 34F

Two weeks later, and the keg is just about kicked. We've got some people coming over to do a beer tasting on Friday, so I'm shutting the tap down until then.

I'm in an ale cycle right now, but will be brewing up 10-15 gallons of this once that cycle is complete and I can use my ferm chamber at lager temps.

The keg lasted three weeks, only because I slowed down trying to make it last for the group that was coming over. I'm still in my ale cycle, and can't wait to get back to lagering!

Would you be able to post an extract recipe for this? Sounds like one I'd like to try.

Here is a converted Partial mash that I came up with based on what my LHBS carries in stock. Brewers friend has it predicted as a bit dark for the style, but other than that, right on the numbers. I will be picking up the supplies and brewing it up this weekend.

Replacing Cararoma with C 120 will change the flavor, but it should still be tasty!

I drew a sample this afternoon. I think it's going to be tasty. If you have ever had Full Sail Limited edition lager #6, "Black Bock", it is quite similar to that. The dark roast is quite prevalent, but not overbearing. It should be transferred to lager next week.:beer:
