Export(ish) lager with local honey
73% Pilsner
18% Munich
9% local honey (at flameout)
Magnum/tradition bittering
Mittelfruh @ 10
Mittlefruh @ 2

1.054
34/70 cold
~28 ibu
Sounds good. How cold is cold for your 34/70? I ferment all my lagers at 55F. Fermentation speed is fast enough and the beers are clean and crisp.
Normally start around 48-50F then bring up after a few days

I also ferment 34/70 at 50F

Brewed my wet hopped IPA on Tuesday.  My Cascade did not do well this year because it was too dry, but I got enough cones to brew the beer.

Right now I'm nearing the end of the mash on an altbier. The recipe is based on the Alstadt Alt recipe from the Altbier book by Horst Dornbusch.


61% pilsner malt
14% Munich I malt
14% Vienna malt
10% Caramunich I
1% Carafa Special I
Magnum+Spalt Spalter additions at 60 and 5 minutes to hit 38 IBU
Köln Kölsch Style Ale Yeast (Lallemand)
1.048 s.g., 1.011 f.g., 12 SRM, ~5% abv

I brewed my 400th batch of beer today! I brewed a Belgian Quad/Dark Strong with an OG of 1.084 which was a little shy of what I was aiming for. Not worried because I’m sure the pound of Dark Candisyrup and pound of sugar will help the attenuation and come in around 10% ABV.

Thanks. I'm excited about this one because I haven't made one in 3 years and I plan on bottle conditioning this batch, so I can see how it ages.

Yesterday I made a Czech dark lager, following the Tmavý Ležák recipe from the Dark Lagers book by Kraus-Weyermann and Dornbusch. I wanted to use Czech malts for as much of the grist as possible, which made it a bit of work to track down ingredients (the pilsner malt is pretty easy to find; the dark and crystal malts were a stretch!). A decoction step added some effort, but made this a fun brew day.
  • 55% floor-malted Bohemian pilsner malt
  • 32% Bohemian dark malt
  • 9% Carabohemian malt
  • 4% Carafa Special I
  • Saaz at 60, 15, and 5 minutes to hit 29 IBU
  • Novalager yeast (Lallemand)
  • Full volume mash with 75 minutes at 144 (with simultaneous 30 minute boil of decoction), 45 minutes at 160, and 10 minutes at 168. 60 minute boil.
  • 1.045 o.g., ~4.8% abv, 19 SRM

Yep! According to specs, it's in the 5-8L range, so close (but not identical) to Weyermann's Munich I. I had planned to sub in Munich I, but then found the Bohemian dark online, and decided to go for it.

My standard football season lager:

4 lbs Pilsner, 4 lbs 2 Row, 1 lb Munich light, 1 lb Goldswaen Hell, .25 acidulated malt, 1 oz Magnum FWH, 2 ozs Mittelfruh 10’, RO adjusted with 1 tsp CaCl, 1g Brewtan B, 90 minute mash and 30 min boil.  1 sachet of Novalager ferment under pressure at 10 psi 56F.

Now if only my football team could be this reliable!

I brewed late Friday afternoon into the evening.  80% Avangard Pils, 20% Bonlander Munich.  24 IBUs of Edelweiss to bitter and then a ½ ounce late.  Third run of Novalager which took off in about three hours.  This morning it's chugging along like it's being paid overtime.  :D  The harvested yeast in the flask settled nicely from the prior batch.  The wort was so nice and clear on top of the yeast.  I still haven't sampled much of the Nova beers but I hope to get my Festbier on tap soon .. that was my first Nova beer.  Cheers Beerheads.
