    Yeah its similar to a vienna/old style marzen. But more ibus, and a near-pilsner level of
    finishing hops (saaz or similar). In general a little bit drier, though not always. The amber
    and dark czech s...

    1.075 is a perfectly acceptable OG for a doppelbock. Really with large lagers it can be

    still drop a point o...

    Just a few notes. Caravienne and c20 are pretty much different versions of the same thing. Not
    that using both will hurt. If you can get belma hops they have a distinctive strawberry flavor
    to them. O...

    yeah and CaraAroma is 150L crystal, it gives alot of dark fruitcake flavors, without the burnt

    Not sure why you got rid of the debittered black malt, commercial examples from poland and the
    baltics have a very gentle roast character. Is it going to be dark enough with just a bit of
    chocolate ma...

    should I skip on the amber and crystal malt. Im afraid this won't go well with and double IPAI
    dont like crystal malt in a big IPA. But i live on the west coast, where drier IPAs are in
    vogue, you mig...

    A small amount (1% or less) of carafa special 2 or 3. (midnight wheat or black prinz malt are
    US domestic versions)

  • Posted in thread: Lagering Timing Question on 02-02-2016 at 04:57 PM
    If the month is at 50 degrees that should be fine. Ive left lagers to d-rest for 2 weeks cause
    i didnt have a keg free and I couldnt tell a difference compared to my usual procedure.
