Dopplebock feedback
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:28:34 PM »
I'm working up to a dopplebock with a string of lagers. I'm a huge Celebrator fan, and while I'm not looking to clone it, I'd certainly be happy with a brew in that ballpark. I've never brewed one, but here's what I was thinking of brewing:

Looks very close to one I brewed early this year (and just tapped on Christmas  8) ).

I like your recipe a lot.  I personally always opt for Mittlefruh, but this one's about the malt anyways so its unlikely to matter.
