Doppelbock recipes
« on: February 01, 2013, 12:16:08 PM »
Believe it or not, I've never brewed a doppelbock.  My window of opportunity for brewing lagers is so short that I just haven't gotten around to it.  So, I'm looking for a great doppelbock recipe.  I'd prefer one that doesn't need decoction, although I might be able to talk myself into if I have the time.  Step mash is OK.  So, anybody got anything for me? (BTW, I already checked the recipe wiki).

I was also thinking about brewing a dopplebock because I'll have a yeast cake of Munich Lager (2308)ready in another week from a Vienna Lager batch.  I had some Spaten Optimator on tap last Sept at a German American Fest and it was delicious.  If I could make something close to that I would be very happy.

You can't brew a doppelbock with batch sparging
