Glad you enjoyed the DK. As you know, yours won't be at all the same,  but that doesn't mean you can't apply the same ideas. The big takeaways (aside from the hops), are the pils/Vienna blend and the sugar. WY1217 plays a big part, too.


The pils/Vienna blend has made an absolutely killer wort! Getting ready for the boil now...


Your frequent admonition to call something an homage, not a clone, is ringing in my ears today!

vienna is only going to grow in popularity. it needs to shake off pre-conceived notions of what its good for. one memorable beer that imho seemed to show off some vienna was a very strong ale i did that had 10% bunch of vienna, 2row and a pound of smoked oak. im on my 3rd iteration of an under 9SRM vienna lager. current one that has fermented is 7 SRM, i think it just turns out more flavourful than pils but very much in the same ballpark


Vienna is one of my favorite "accessory" malts! It's also super in a SMaSH or as the main grain in a session IPA. It brings tons of flavor, and avoids the cloyingness that 100% Munich does sometimes.


That lager sounds delicious!

I love simple grain bills for pale ales

that sounds spot on. ive been working on an irish stout in this vein, and one thing ive done is reduced the flaked grains (i dont use flaked oats, but barley). tried without last time and it still had a massive head from the roasted barely (its unmalted). im thinking its simply not necessary. i am in the half and half black malt/RB zone. magnum sounds good of course. currently working on the water profile.


my next iteration will be lowish in minerals but with sulfate between 75 and 100. total roasted grains reduced from 13% to around 12%. maybe 1 to 2% flaked barley this time. i may switch from golden promise to 2row as frankly i dont think it provides anything in particular.

most controversially i will likely use BRY97 as im using it more and more in all my dark beers and i want to hit higha ttenuation.

Thank you. Are you kegging or bottle conditioning?

Just bottled my favorite porter last Saturday.  Even though it takes a full two weeks (or sometimes a bit more) for bottle carbonation to be substantially complete, I'll have to starting a popping a cap at two day intervals after about a week.

It's easier to read brewing books and get information from the forum than to sacrifice virgins to appease the brewing gods when bad beer happens!

FWIW, back when I was bottle conditioning, I would fill one pint PTE bottle with the air squeezed out of it (deflated slightly).  When it was inflated and rock hard, I would be safe to assume that the glass bottles were also done carbonating fully.

Congratulations!  Looks like a great beer. Hope it’s the best you ever brewed. (My kinda water treatment )


One day, you’ll wake up and there won’t be anymore time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Don’t wait. Do it now.

Thank ya sir! Using a lot of leftovers, but I think I'll get what I want.

That seems like a lot of grain for a 5 gallon batch. That would be more like a Double IPA or Barleywine for me.

I make 6.5 gal batches to account for losses and samples. Should come in around 1.070. 70 IBU.
