According to Rogue;

Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogues proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast.
Nothing about lagering it....I didn't when I made my last batch with 1338 and don't plan on doing it to this batch with harvested pacman....But I am going to ferment it in the low 60's, using the t-shirt water bath method.

Right- it's called a "maibock style ale" on the website. I ferment it cool, like 60-62, but not lager temps.

I did a batch a while back...kegging it this week, but my fermenting temp was high..around 70-75. When I racked to my secondary I had a VREY strong alcahol taste...it's been conditioning now for just about 4 weeks. Does anyone think that the high ferm temp could have messed with it?

Definitely. High fermentation temperatures often cause fusel alcohols to develop. They don't age out, but the aging might help smooth it out some.

Well high fermentation temps, do cause the presence of fusil alcohols, which produce the "hot" alcohol taste....My last batch was in the same temp range, and it did have a bit of that bite to it, but I liked it.

This current batch of mine I pitched with the harvested Pacman, and I kept it in an ice/water bath and kept the fermentation temp below 70 degrees (the brewer for rogue likes to brew it in the low 60's)

So we'll see. I won't know for several more weeks, since I'm letting it sit on the yeast cake for a month.

I did do the water bath but found out a little late about adding frozen bottles of water to the bath...I don't think that it was too hot but with this strain of yeast it may have been...I also thought that the large amounts of fermentables could have givin that taste too? Going to keg tonight...so like you said Revvy...we'll see!

Cheers!

I love it...so much that I went through my 2 cases in almost no time DESPITE having 3 other beers in the pipeline.

I have a mix of 2 liter and smaller bottles in the freezer that I use in the bath, it works like a charm...just swap them out and re-freeze.

Ok i am going to brew this recipe this weekend. One little problem. Neither of my local HBS's have any of the yeasts that are mentioned in this thread. Are there any other yeasts that I could try that would work as well? I am a big fan of Dead Guy Ale and dont want to mess this one up. Thanks in advance.
