I’ve been keeping notes too. I have the Festbier lined up for next weekend! The beers better be as good as the photos!
Good luck on the bock. I have one more keg of it sitting in my on-deck fridge. Cheers BrewBama.
This is a beer that I originally just called a 'simple lager'. I eventually called it a Landbier because the definition is so wide open. It seems like a helles but the ingredients were off by enough for me to call it by another style. 95% Swaen LAGER malt and 5% Briess Copper Malt. 22 IBUs of Northern Brewer at the start of the boil and Omega Bayern lager yeast. Delicious beer.
Excellent beer. I’ve been keeping notes on your creations. Your Shiner homage is on deck. This will make the Summertime line up I’m sure.
That part is YOUR responsibility!
I really like that festbier recipe. So simple but such a satisfying beer. My recipes used to be so much more complex and some very smart people taught me that simple can be excellent. My festbier would originally have 5-6 malts in it... aromatic, caramunich, etc. Not necessary. I still find a good amount of lager time to be one of the best things you can do for a lager beer. Cheers.
EDIT: By the way, I went back and checked that Festbier recipe. In the FESTBIER thread, I said it was 25 IBUs of Hallertau but I used Spalt on this one. Not really the type of thing you're going to notice after lagering but my Spalts were 4.7% and my Hallertau were only 3.2 so I used the Spalt. Really nice.
