Weekday Bock

Postby ragin_cajun » Tue Mar 10, 2009 12:47 pm

I brewed a big, dark, copper colored Bock today. I have very high hopes for this one. I'll repitch some of the cake from a Munich Dunkel I kegged last night. Next batch is a DoppelBock.

This should be on the public forum.

I waited a few hours to pitch. racked wort off the cold break to a second carboy. poured a little more than half the yeast slurry from the Dunkel in there.

bubblin away now. fermentation started in under 24 hours. kinda fast for a lager yeast in a 1.069 wort, huh?

14 days, still bubblin' along. I guess this'll take 3-4 weeks. 1.070 is a pretty big beer.
