Good read in the New York times today on Bock beer.

Careful some decoction required.

Mmmm... I can't WAIT until I can lager so I can start making some of these...

I had the La Rossa as our work Christmas dinner last year (it was the only "interesting" sounding brew at the Italian restaurant we were dining it). MUCH different that I was expecting, I had no idea I was getting a bock! Not what I expected (ignorantly) from an Italian brew, and something that I couldn't drink every night, but very smooth, tasty, and warming on a cool December evening.

I've got one finishing up primary ferm right now. I'm psyched. My first bock! And an accident at that (it was supposed to be a Dunkel, but the OG ended up way off the charts, and thus, it's a bock).

Nice article. I also had a La Rossa, in the beer purgatory called Sweden. I ordered it out of desperation being familiar with the regular Moretti, but wound up pleasantly surprised.

Mine is basically carb'ed up now and is decent, but I clearly have a lot to learn about brewing this style.

I read that today, also.

That dude writes beer articles for the Times quite often. They're usually pretty good.

I've always wondered if he was kin to Isaac?
