No dry hopping. It's a head-scratcher. Tastes great, it's the anal retentive brewer in me, it's a lager it should be clear! I think it may be time to just RDWHAHB.

Just close your eyes when you drink it and savor the taste.

had a few dates like that in college...just close your eyes and pretend she looks good  ;D

i dont use amber malt in my irish. its similar to melanoidin, biscuit malt, victory,aromatic.  my base is maris otter, so already enough of the biscuit bready contribution. i also use 300srm roasted barley

this is one of my simple irish recipes I love:

4.0 oz    Roasted Barley                       (300.0 SRM) Grain      2.3 %

depends on maltster. weyermann has nice biscuit and honey with pronounced bready malt. 2-4 oz is nice in many beers, and not at all burnt tasting IMO. nice reddish brown color contribution.

I cant say it does or does not contribute similar to a decoction.

Looks like a dry hopped IPA. I only use star-san to sani, and Oxi fro cleaning.

Did you dry hop in keg ?  A healthy dose of dry hops would cloud a clear beer obviously.


Good thought Jon...that's literally the only we haven't asked.

Yeah, this one has me scratching my head.

Ok forgot this is maibock...shouldn't be dry hops.

I don't mean to brag, but this is my haul from the beer swap. Way above and beyond, but thanks Kevin (braufessor)!


That would have cost me $100 to ship! Very nice.

Anymore info or opinions on this malt. I heard it may be a mix of Munich and Melanoiden malt.
