Yes, it's an ale...but it's similar to Dead Guy, which is Rogue's Americanized Maibock, so I posted under the Bock style.

This beer is absolutely awesome. If I had to compare it to a commercial brew, it's like Sam Adams lager with more flavor/body and a touch of alcohol warmth.

Do you remember what temp you stored this at for primary and/or secondary? Was it mid or lower end of an ale?

Yuri_Rage 02-13-2009 11:29 PM

Lower end...60F for both.

Are you using 70% for the mash efficiency? Also, what Saaz hops are you using , German or Czech?

Yuri_Rage 07-26-2010 09:51 PM

I brewed this a couple of months ago, with a couple of modifications. I used belgian pilsner for my base malt, and cara 45 instead of the crystal 60 (LHBS was out). I also subbed Northern Brewer for the Perle hops, and did a single decoction (more for color than flavor - I doubt it affected the flavor much). Finally, I used S-05 yeast.

The beer has been in bottles for a couple of weeks now (not fully carbed), but I shared a bottle with a buddy tonight, and it was awesome. Great malty flavor and aroma, just the right amount of sweetness (and pretty decent color). I'm hoping the alcohol flavor mellows with a bit more aging, but it's pretty close to perfect right now.

mashing this recipe today....wow great aroma!
if this tastes as good as it smells while mashing it will be delicious.

I really enjoyed it the couple of times I brewed it. I haven't made it in a while...maybe I'll revisit it soon!
