Perhaps if it's a secret...one wouldn't divulge that information here.
However...I'm planning to brew up a Dopplebock this weekend using the yeast slurry from my Schwarty.
Here's my recipe:

8.0 oz Carafa I (319.0 SRM)

This is what I made the last year. I think I want to remove some of the crystal malt and add a touch more Carafa for a darker beer.
What's your trick for this style?
