Just checked my gravity as the air lock pretty much stopped bubbling yesterday. It's at 1.014. I think I'll rack it to the carboy in a couple days and cold condition it the rest of the way. I've got space in my fridge right now. Any recommendations? As a maibock, I would think that lagering it for a while would be helpful.

That would be fine, but make sure it conditions at room temperature a bit first. It's a "bigger" beer and needs the time at room temperature, too.

How much time at room temperature? I got busy with some other things and haven't put it in the carboy yet. I'm thinking about brewing today and plan on using the yeast cake.

Wow, what happened? Somehow it got kegged and it's all gone. That was quick! I'm going to brew ten gallons this weekend but hop it up a little more. I thought the recipe was close but it needs a little more hops.

YooperMon, I just received the AHS Dead Guy Clone kit and they have the mash at 150. Have you tried lower mash temps or have you always been 156-158? That was the only big difference in recipe.

I never have mashed lower. Mine is kind of "thick", you know- full bodied and rich. I think a mash temp of 150 would give you a light-medium bodied beer. It might taste great, but I like a fuller mouthfeel in that beer.

The Szamatulskis say to mash at 151. Their recipe is very similar, but in respect of their intellectual property, I won't list the rest of the details here, other to say that the minor differences have been tried by one brewer or another throughout these pages. I like Yooper's idea of mashing higher as I too prefer a maltier beer.

EDIT: PM received on the below. Thanks again Yooper!!!!
----------------------------------------------------------
I brewed the actual kit version produced by Rogue. It turned out great. With that being said, I want to do my second all grain based on Yooper's AG recipe (posted below). However, I don't have any software to run the water amounts and temperatures for my mash/sparge. I am using a cooler type mash tun (big enough for whatever). I only have a pot capable of cooking around 6.5 gallons. If someone could run the numbers for me, I would be very grateful and drink 7 beers in your honor (too include a "one for my homies" spill). Also, has anyone tweaked the recipe, as earlier discussed, to increase the amount of Munich to 20%? I would be interested in that info as well. Thanks all.

S/F,

J8D
