On October 16, I brewed a Czech dark lager. A nice winter session beer.
10 gallons, 1.052 OG
13 lbs. Avangard Pilsner malt
4.5 lbs. Avangard Munich malt
2.25 lbs. CaraMunich 80
6 oz. CaraBohemian
12 oz. Carafa III (added to the sparge)
Mash in at 148°F for 60 min. Pull and boil a decoction for 10 minutes, add back to raise to 155°F for 30 minutes. 90 min total mash time.
3.3 oz. Halletaur Mittelfrueh 60 min
2 oz. Czech Saaz 20 min
1 oz. Czech Saaz 0 min
Boiled for 90 minutes. Immersion chiller got the wort down to 56°F with constant stirring in 15 minutes.
Split between the yeast cakes from previous pils (34/70 and WLP833 Ayinger yeast).
