Default Extract w/grain (maybe PM...) Maibock recipe needed

Looking to brew my first lager, since i just bought a chest freezer.

Looking for some advice on a Maibock recipe, I'd like something that I can brew in the next few weeks and have it ready by, well, April/May. So about a 5-6 month fermentation schedule.

Let me know what you have! Thanks!

I'm no maibock expert, but I don't think the honey malt will be appropriate in it. If you like it, of course, that's fine.

I have a non-authentic German recipe, called MYbock, that turned out really good if you're looking to see what I did.

honey malt was a "I have this lying around" addition, not sure if I want it in there or not. also not sure how much 2 ounces will make an impact...

i'll definitely check out your MYbock, thanks yooper
