Lazy Bones Helles Bock(ish)
A friend wanted a beer pong beer that was around 7.7% and this is what I came up with. Not entirely sure what category this should be but it was built around the idea of a helles bock so thats what im calling it. Technically it isn't a lager but hey, it's a damn tasty beer and the alcohol is VERY hidden...Cheers!

Amount Item Type % or IBU
9.50 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 58.06 %
2.00 lb Caravienne Malt (22.0 SRM) Grain 16.13 %
2.00 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 12.90 %
2.00 lb Wheat Malt, Bel (2.0 SRM) Grain 12.90 %
1.00 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (60 min) Hops 13.2 IBU
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (30 min) Hops 5.1 IBU
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (15 min) Hops 3.3 IBU

Mash fairly high, around 155 for 60 minutes. Vorlauf until clear and batch sparge. The lagering of this is key...I like about 40 degrees for a month but slightly colder or warmer will work. Also, for whatever reason this always drops crystal clear so I add a small amount of yeast at bottling. I know this shouldn't be nessesary but I have had issues with carbonation with this beer so now I add. Enjoy and drink carefully....

What yeast did you use? How long in primary and at what temp?

Whitelabs 029 Kolsch yeast. Ferment at 62 until it's at final gravity and then transfer to secondary and lager it for around a month. I used around 35 degrees for lager temp.

I must have been blind because I just noticed it in your original post!
