Just had a party this past weekend, and EVERYONE LOVED this beer.
I mean I knew it was good but I tweaked the recipe just a little bit and WOW.
Anyways, the 5 gallon keg only lasted about 1 hour.
Thankfully I had another 5 in the fridge ready to go. That one I will save for myself.

How sweet did this beer turn out? Did it have a strong fruit flavor to it? Also, you said that you tweaked the recipe. What did you tweak?

black pepper, really? As soon as I shift the lagers out of my freezer I'm giving this one a try.

was there a black pepper taste to it? similar to dieu du ciel's routes de epices peppercorn dopplebock?

ive heard of people adding black pepper in small amount to simulate boiling in a copper kettle.

Wow - brewed this a week ago and it's just about perfect. I mixed Wyeast 3944 and 1214 just for kicks and this beer is awesome. The black pepper is barely noticeable, but it's there at the end. Great recipe!

How did you prepare the black pepper, just crushed it like the coriander or pummelled fine?
