Length of decoction boil for bock

(1/3) > >>

woody:
I have been doing a 30 min boil of the decoction for my marzen and dunkel.   I have a bock planned for Monday and am considering a longer decoction boil.  Any thoughts?

Kaiser:
I never go longer than 45 min. Not because I have data that it stops making a difference, but because any longer seems too long.

majorvices:
I have never read anything that ever stated a professional brewer doing anything longer than 45 min. 30 min. is plenty long enough IMO.

bonjour:
I boil my decoctions for 20 minutes or until I THINK I may be getting a burn on the bottom of the pot (despite constant stirring).
It is better to stop then and not even try to continue.

Steverino:
I'm more in the 15 minute camp. 10 minutes at 150 or so, then quickly up to boiling, 15 minutes there.
