Default 2011 Bock

So it's about time to get a bock going for the winter. Pitched the yeast starter from last year's harvested cake and last week's extra wort, so all I need is a recipe.

I've got more Vienna than I know what to do with, so yesterday I stopped by the LHBS and grabbed the other stuff.

Should be considerably maltier than last year's Bock (the first runnings of a Bock/Marzen partigyle experiment) and, hopefully, less overwhelmingly banana/clove-y as I've improved my temperature control techniques since then.

The decoction schedule isn't set in stone - I just happened to pick it in Beersmith.

Thoughts?

It's your beer but late hop additions are not usual for a bock and Brewer's Gold seems an odd choice of variety. If you are going to do a late hop with the beer I would use a German noble type.

Brewer's Gold and Nugget are both hybrids of noble varieties. Those are the kinds of choices I tend to make because I always want something a little different.

Plus I was standing there with the freezer door open in the LHBS, I needed to make a decision, and they were out of Mittelfruh.

Like I said, it's your beer, and you asked for thoughts so I gave you mine. I'm not sure where you got that information regarding Brewer's Gold and Nugget but I doubt its' veracity.

Re late hopped bocks, I have lately been enjoying Heller Bock Saphir at a local spot. It's brewed in Austria and does go against tradition in that it is dry hopped with Saphir. The hop aspect does work because the Saphir is a modern low-alpha derivative of Continental noble hops and the rich, malty body of the beer is not overshadowed.
