Thanks for the thread. I brewed a Doppelbock and a Dunkel Doppelbock, they are going fast, they are so awesome. I had a Rauchbier and a Maibock on my "to brew" list, I will be adding at least a few off of your list.

This is looking like a good list. Lots to brew and there prob will still be additions and deletions. All ideas are welcome. Now, can you recommend good all grain recipes? Would be even better if you have tried them and really enjoy them! So far, I really like my Schwarzbier and it looks like I have a good Kölsch recipe.

Just have to say, This is SO neat!
I have a good Doublealt(Stickealt) recipe, but it's partial mash, and I've only done it once so far. The 2013 version will be on-deck for September. It's similar to 'Long Trail Doublebag'. Isn't Vermont a province of Germany?

Reason: spelling

What about brewing the Ur-Marzen/Oktoberfest in March, to be drank in September/Oktober?
I believe that's the traditional timeframe, but could be wrong.

I like to brew Hefeweizen in spring/early summer to be drank through summer.

Great list, how about a Weizen Dobbelbock?

This is exactly what Im striving to do. Traditional German beers, brewed at the "right" time, to be served at the "right" time, using German malts, hops and yeast strains, in accordance to German purity law. Thats the goal anyway lol!!

i brewed a kickin weizen trippelbock based earlier this year. best beer i've ever made. OG was like 1.million . fermented with 830 and lagered for a couple of months.

damn it's good and smooth and strong. i try to drink it only once every couple of weeks.

dear OP -

your schedule is AWESOME. german beers have more variety than most people know and certainly need more love. thanks for making this thread. mad respect

That trippelbock sounds impressive! At this point, lets jus say the schedule is ambitious, but doable. Can you see any ways to make the schedule more "appropriate"?
