I've been tinkering with this recipe for several years, and I think I finally have what I want. The efficiency could have been better, but it was my first attempt at a decoction mash. One could probably get the same results from a step mash. Here it is:


Red Baron Bock
Brew Type: All Grain Date: 1/6/2007
Style: Traditional Bock Brewer: Bernie Brewer
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Volume: 6.82 gal Boil Time: 60 min

Actual Efficiency: 65.4 %


Ingredients Amount Item Type % or IBU
12.00 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 84.2 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 7.0 %
1.00 lb Caramunich Malt (56.0 SRM) Grain 7.0 %
0.25 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 1.8 %
1.50 oz Hallertauer [4.80%] (60 min) Hops 24.4 IBU
1 Pkgs Bavarian Lager (Wyeast Labs #2206) [Starter 125 ml] [Cultured] Yeast-Lager

Beer Profile
Estimated Original Gravity: 1.071 SG (1.064-1.072 SG) Measured Original Gravity: 1.066 SG
Estimated Final Gravity: 1.017 SG (1.013-1.019 SG) Measured Final Gravity: 1.018 SG
Estimated Color: 21.6 SRM (14.0-22.0 SRM) Color [Color]
Bitterness: 24.4 IBU (20.0-27.0 IBU) Alpha Acid Units: 1.4 AAU
Estimated Alcohol by Volume: 7.0 % (6.3-7.2 %) Actual Alcohol by Volume: 6.3 %



Mash Profile Name: Decoction Mash, Single Mash Tun Weight: 9.00 lb
Mash Grain Weight: 14.25 lb Mash PH: 5.4 PH
Grain Temperature: 72.0 F Sparge Temperature: 168.0 F
Sparge Water: 2.21 gal

Name Description Step Temp Step Time
Protein Rest Add 28.50 qt of water at 126.6 F 122.0 F 35 min
Saccharification Decoct 12.08 qt of mash and boil it 155.0 F 45 min
Mash Out Heat to 168.0 F over 10 min 168.0 F 10 min


Mash Notes
Used in some authentic German styles. Attempt to draw decoction from the thickest portion of the mash. Profiles vary. Some traditional German mashes use a long acid rest at 40 deg C. Also some sources recommend the decoction amount be given a 15 minute saccharification rest at 158 F (70 C) before boiling it.

Carbonation and Storage
Carbonation Type: Kegged (Forced CO2) Carbonation Volumes: 2.4 (2.2-2.7 vols)
Estimated Pressure: 11.2 PSI Kegging Temperature: 40.0 F
Pressure Used: - Age for: 6.0 Weeks
Storage Temperature: 40.0 F

Thanks for the recipe. I won a gold metal in the Dominion cup with my Bock based on your recipe.

Brewed this up today. OG was 1.067 so I was a little low with my efficiency also. I'll let you know how it turns out. Cheers!

Just kidding, but do you have any pictures of this fine brew?
