I'd get the light colored munich malt and caramunich.

I think the grains really give it the flavor that Dead Guy has. It's not a "flat" tasting beer, it's malty and rich tasting. Even with light LME and the light colored specialty grains, the beer will probably be darker than the original. LME just tends to be darker. So, I'd use the lighter colored grains.

I've done this recipe twice now with Safale US-05 and it's turned out great. One of my best to date, in fact. Thanks Yooper!

Going to have to give this a try, I'm a big fan of Rogue Beer, and from all the positive feedback this sounds like a good one.

My question though, is everybody using 8lbs of XLDME? or 4lbs LME and 4lbs LDME? Does it make much of a difference in the final taste?

Just wondering (BTW this will be my second brew ever)

Ok, it's been a year since I joined the forum and I have yet to make a Yooperbrew recipe. In 2 weeks I plan to brew an AG 10g batch of this. I'd like to use US-05 and from what I've read this yeast works well with the recipe, yes?

Is the mash temp. really supposed to be 158F?

I've used us-o5, harvest pacman, 1338 Euro Ale Yeast, and just last week saflager...

Us-05 works great.

What would be a good water profile to target for this?

I really don't know, to be honest. I haven't delved at all into water chemistry- and I can't tell you what is in my tap water except that it's alkaline and high in carbonates, and I use 5.2 stabilizer.

The beer is malty, though, so I'd suggest a water profile similar to what you would use for a German Maibock.

I brewed a PM batch of this on Friday (2/6). Very smooth session, hit my temps right on (mashed at 152F), got the right OG (1.071). It's bubbling away in the basement as we speak (used ~15g of US-05). I used Beersmith to convert Yooper's AG to PM. I'm happy to share if anyone's interested. (One change: I couldn't find dark munich, so I used regular munich.)

Stay tuned, I'll update in a few weeks with the results.

Thanks to Yooper for what looks like a great recipe!

Maibock / Helles Bock;

Maibock / Helles Bock - BeerAdvocate

It is malty like a good old dopplebock... I had Aventenis the other day... they have a very similar tasting profile... except my DGA is a bit fruity.
