I bottled a case if this beer this weekend and started "tasting" it last night...All I can say is WOW! This is an excellent Bock! Just in time for Cincinnati's bockfest weekend the first weekend in March, I can't wait to share this with everybody. I wish I would have made more than just 5 gallons.

I have everything to make this just waiting for a primary to open up. Going to use calf lager yeast.

I brewed up a batch of this over the weekend. Made a few mistakes. I missed the fact that it's supposed to be a 90 minute boil. I got an O.G. of 1.058 mostly because of the shortened boil. Had to sub Tettnang for the Hallertau as my LHBS was out. I also went with Wyeast 2112 as I can't ferment at 48 F and I plan on doing an actual steam beer later this winter.

I have a question about the IBUs. I used pellets instead of whole hops and my AA levels were slightly different from the recipe (but not much.) I put the hops in the Hopville calculator http://beercalculus.hopville.com/recipe and get 34.8 IBUs. Even with leaf hops and the AA levels from the recipe here, I'm way over 26 IBUs. So my question is how was this number reached? I assume it has a lot to do with the first wort hop calculation, but that's just a guess. It's not going to be the award winning beer it should be, but I'm still excited to see how it turns out. Leaves me plenty of room for improvement
