That sounds good. I haven’t made a Vienna Lager in a couple of years. Maybe, I’ll make one in a few weeks. This weekend I’m going to brew Denny’s Noti Brown with different hops.

The question should maybe have been asked, do you want a German version or an American version?

Too much Carared.  Take that down to 1/4 lb or less, or zero.

No salt additions necessary or recommended.
I agree 100%. I say zero. I don’t care for caramel, sweet flavor in these styles.

I'm the other side of the fence. I had three last night and found it delicious. Plan on at least another three today. Really got my juices flowing for O'fest beers this year.

I think it is quite malty. IMO everyone should stack it up against their favorite O'fest in a blind taste tests. Now to be fair what I am drinking was packaged on 07/23/18 and may have been made in NC as opposed to CA.
I have to say that I liked it and it's much better than most American Oktoberfest beers (and I got it two weeks after packaging), but I REALLY liked last year's version.

Dopplebock is nice in the colder months. I've used this recipe with good results  55% Munich 40% Pils 5% Caramunich OG around 1.085  German Noble hops to around 25 IBU's and Wyeast 2206 (I used a yeast cake from a Munich Dunkel).

Equipment and Software / Re: Best grain mill available today.

Has anyone bought a Millar's Barley Mill?  I think they've only got the one model and while it's got everything you need, hopper, bucket, etc., I think it's kind of pricey at $280-300.  Would be interested to hear anyone's input on it though.
I have one of their older models that was around $170 and it works much better than my old Barley Crusher.

I don't always drink a liter of Weissbier on a Wednesday, but when I do I'm better for it!
Beautiful foam!

Great episode and I think I might try that mashing technique on my annual Barleywine.

Beer Recipes / Re: Kolsch or Cream Ale?
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:08:51 PM »
I like a Kolsch to have a subtle white wine flavor from the yeast. Cream Ales can have corn in them, but not necessary. Maybe have some others taste it as well and I think you’re on the right track with entering it on how it tastes.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Sours
« on: July 11, 2018, 03:53:30 AM »
Some people kettle sour beers that can be done relatively quickly. And some people take the longer approach that can take up to year or more to reach the desired flavor. I have done both and I prefer the longer method because the beer flavor tends to have multiple layers and nuances. The kettle sour beers tend to be more one dimensional. The price for the kits seem really high. The grain bill can be very simple or complex. You can start out with Pils and Wheat (1.050)and under 10 IBU’s. Use a mixed culture like WY 3763 Roeselare with lacto, Brett, and Pedio. I use separate equipment for fermenting and transferring my sour beers. I also have a keg dedicated to sours with its own picnic tap. I hope that helps a bit.
