Couldn’t be happier with how this turned out. Finished at 1.014. Needs a coulple more weeks to fully smooth out. Loving a bit more balance from higher bitterness.
That's great that it turned out nice. The one I made recently didn't last long which speaks to how much my wife and friends liked it. I'll be making this every spring from now on.

I've used them quite a bit for APA/AIPA.  Might make for an interesting lager of some sort.
So, did you use other hops with them? I have a bunch of different American varieties(Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial, Mosaic, Idaho 7, and Citra).

Ingredients / LORAL Cryo Hops
« on: May 03, 2018, 09:26:01 PM »
I just realized that my membership had expired when I got an email about renewing for a gift of 1 oz LORAL Cryo hops. So, I quickly renewed and was wondering what these hops would go good with style or other hops? They seem like they might be nice as a flavor/aroma addition for a Lager. Or would they be nice mixed with another American hop in a Pale Ale or IPA?

Very interesting information. I currently have been just using WY 1056 and WY 2124 over and over again. I guess I’ve been using two Lager strains or maybe 2124 is actually an Ale strain because I’ve fermented it at 60-62 and it was still clean.

I brewed Drew’s Patersbier: Father’s Reward Enkel today. https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/how-to-brew/patersbier-the-lawnmower-beer-of-trappist-monks/

It came in at 1.046 which gave me a 78% BH efficiency which is not bad for the first time recirculating and whirlpooling with the new Chugger pump.


Nice color and clarity! I brewed a German Pils today.

Thanks for the info guys. The most I’ve gone is 5-6 generations and I once got a contamination with some stored yeast. It ruined two beers with bad phenolic flavor, so I’m always leery about that happening again.

Well that sucks. Unfortunately there isn't really any way to save it this time but let's fix it for the next time!

The main problem I see is that you aged it for 6 months in a secondary. Secondaries are not a great option unless you can purge the secondary of oxygen first, otherwise you will oxidize the beer. And 6 months is crazy long aging for this style. 4-6 weeks is plenty. If you want to age it, bottle it and store it cold. This beer style does actually age well for up to about 1 year, but not much past that.
I agree with this and would add that bottle conditioning helps if aging for some time.

Don’t offer advice unless I’ve actually tried or done it before.

Mai Bock ready for May.

I’m going to see how many generations I can take WY 1056 and WY 2124 before I notice any difference. Currently I’m at the third generation for both. Just wondering how many generations some of you have taken a yeast?

Maibock for me. I simplified the recipe this year to just Pils and Munich malt with Hersbrucker hops.

Curious what your ratio of pils to Munich is. I am brewing my fist maibock on Friday probably at 75% pils and 25% Munich 6L
70% Pils and 30% Munich. I plan on kegging it within a week.
For me, it's an export-strength Helles, which I think should have a similar malt profile to Maibock (all in the family) -- I'm going with 67% floor-malted Bohemian Pils and 33% floor-malted Bohemian Dark.  Sounds like we're all on the same page, can't all be wrong! :) Sterling hops for me.
Last year I made a Maibock with some Vienna and Caramunich along with the Pils and Munich and it ended up with a somewhat muddled malt flavor. This year I also went with a lower OG of 1.066 (lower end of the style) instead of last year’s OG of 1.075.

They're probably getting better attenuation from the yeast than what your calculator is set at.

I would leave the Melanoidin out. You have plenty of Munich malt for a rich, malty flavor.

I made a Maibock two years ago that I was not very pleased with. It had Pils, Munich, Vienna, and Caramunich and the malt flavor was too muddled up. So, I like that you have a simple grain bill. Last week, I made another Maibock with a bit lower gravity and 70% Pils and 30% Munich. I'll let you know how it turns out. I would caution about hopping too much because this style is more about the bigger malt flavors. I like your recipe and would favor the Munich over the Vienna.
