Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Wyeast Bavarian Lager 2206   
Yeast Starter: 4L   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.080   
Final Gravity: 1.020   
IBU: 19.8   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 16.54 srm   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 @ 52   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 60+ @ 36   
Tasting Notes: Pure Malty Goodness. Be careful with this one. At 8% ABV, it feels more like 12%.   

Note the 90% efficiency. This was due to an incredible crush and the use of so much munich in the mash. My typical efficiency is around 80% these days and I was actually aiming for a normal Bock with this recipe. Turned out a dopplebock on accident and I'm glad it did.

Anyone updates on this? I made a batch of this and it came out pretty rough, it's still aging. Originally had a Brussels sprout type of smell after coming out of the fridge for a 1 month lager.

It's been aging for another month now in a carboy and the smell seems to have died down... Any ideas? Anyone else make this before? This is my first lager, so i'm not sure if the smell is to be expected with the yeast and all...

Lager yeast tends to put off a sulfer-ish smell depending on the yeast. My efficiency was fairly high on this batch, so I'm sure it came out a bit different than yours will. How long did you primary, and did you do a D-rest?

It lagered for 3 and half weeks (@40f) then I did a 4 day d-rest (73f temp), the smell was noticeable around then. It's been on the secondary for about a month now and the smell has started reside from the beer.

Also, I only hit a 65% efficiency, I had to boil it down to 4.5 gallons. I prepared the beer to hit around 75% with a higher grain bill. The only reason i didn't hit 75% was because of the PH (i'm using a stabilizer now) and the crappy grain crush from the brew shop.
