Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold
« on: November 16, 2017, 03:55:01 PM »
I’ve noticed that Great Lakes beers have changed over the years. I remember about 3-5 years ago they began brewing on a much bigger system and the beers had a distinct difference in color and taste. I had a Dortmunder Gold about a year ago and was not impressed with the malt flavor.

Well, it tasted like beer at the 4-week mark, so I transferred it, primed the batch and bottled. Tried it after two weeks and it still tasted like beer - but carbonated ;). Now at 3 weeks in the bottle. Poured some this afternoon after chilling for a few hours. Real happy with it. Pours clean, nice head. Not very hoppy, as I'd planned. And, it has a distinct Belgian flavor to it - that yeasty flavor Belgians have, but not overpowering. It is not what I would call an off-flavor. I used Safale US-05, which isn't supposed to taste Belgiany (well, it IS made in Belgium ...) but I've read that low-to-mid-70s in the bucket can do this. I was pretty careful about sanitation. Thoughts?
It probably is the fermentation temperature. You said it started out in a 74.5 degree room, which means the temperature in the fermenter could have reached close to 80. Next time try to keep it in the low to mid 60's.

I used Black Prinz in my last Dunkel and there is no roast flavor. I only used 2-3 oz though for a 5 gallon batch.

I don't think it will make a huge difference. The main flavors will come from the hops and Belgian yeast character.

Jon, I really like it. I bought some last year and it made the best Munich Dunkel that I've ever made. The left over went into my Barley Wine and that beer got a second in the first round of NHC. I recently bought a 55 lb bag and next on the list is a Dopplebock.

After months of lagers (a good thing), doing a Citra/Mosaic/Simcoe AIPA this weekend. 94.5% Rahr 2 row, 3% Carahell, 2.5% Caramunich II, 1.064/68 IBU. After that, my tweaked version of Janet's American Brown in a week or two. Having American hop withdrawal.   :)
I hear you. I'm waiting for the next hop crop to buy some. I've run out of American hops for the last month.

I made a Dunkel with Weyermann Barke Munich. This is my favorite Munich Malt of all that I've used.
