I've done it with a clean ale yeast, fermented cool. It wasn't the same beer, but it was close. And tasty. Try something like Pacman and ferment as cool as you can. Or a Cali Ale yeast.

This is probably the most drinkable beer I've made. It's super smooth and has a nice malty taste to it.

I'm entering this in a competition to be judged in a couple weeks. I'll try to post how it did.

Excellent recipe

Don't have scoresheets yet, but it scored a 32, and my other beer (Christmas Ale) scored 41.

I wish this one would have scored higher than the other one, since I'm a huge fan of it, but at least when I get score sheets back I'll know how I can improve on it.

Breaking it down:
First year brewing
Partial mash
First lager
Weak boil
Ice bath cooled
No hot or cold break
Completely hacked temp regulation and lagering

This is the second beer I'll be making a second batch of.

So this was my first lager, has been in bottles for 2 months now. I'm happy with how it turned out Nice clear beer, smooth malty flavour and aroma, crisp finish. Carbonation is a little low, I did not add more yeast when bottled. Revvy, how is the head retention on this brew for you? I know I don't have much carbonation but any head I get when first poured or subsequently swirled goes down very fast. I'd brew this again and would like better head on it, though I am looking into kegging now for lager brewing to get around the issues of properly bottle conditioning a lager. Thx for the recipe man!

Mine had very minimal head with poor retention too.

(I don't mind, as it's a delicious beer that has only gotten better with age)

My PM version has a pretty good head. The retention is fair, as good as any I've made (which is not terribly good, I suppose, but it's not far shorter than commercial beers).

REVVY!!!

I was thinking a mini-mash.

3.3# BRIESS CBW MUNICH
4# Weyermann Vienna
1# Caramunich Malt
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L

Following the rest of your recipe from there.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Martin

I did a partial mash version (recipe is somewhere upthread) that was similar to that. I used 3.5 pounds of light DME and 5 pounds of Vienna, otherwise the same. That got me to 1.051 OG. My efficiency is low---probably 50% on that one---so that may or may not be useful information, depending on your system.

The recipe worked well, at least malt-wise. I got a little crazy and added some hops late in the boil and overdid it. It's still good, but it would have been better without that.

I just rocked this recipe off yesterday. Awesome efficiency coming in at 80%. Using White labs Belgian lager, hoping it turns out great!
