5.0 / 5.05 ReviewsLots of malt in this oneThis is my first Doppelbock. When I racked this to the secondary, it already tasted pretty good (unlike previous lagers I've made)._x000D_I plan to lager for 6 months before bottling._x000D_You should note that while the instructions state an SG of 1.080-1.084 for 5gal, given the 19lbs of malt that come with the kit you would have to have a really poor mash efficiency (likeMarch 23, 2013One of My All-Time FavoritesI brewed this beer and lagered for 6 months, bottled half and kegged the rest. Given doppelbocks are great beers to age, I cellared the bottles away and sampled them at 6 month increments starting 12 months after brew date. The keg beer wasn't bad at all; slightly medicinal but good nonetheless. At 12 months the beer had mellowed and was delightful. At 18 months it was smooth and brilliant. At 24 months, it was honestly one of the best beers I have ever had, and my (select) friends who got to share those bottles fully agreed. This one gets better with age, and I intend to hold out for the 36 month mark with my next batch, but it's gonna be tough!!April 18, 2017great recipeBrewed this one last year and brewing it again this year. will lager it outside during the western pa winter on top of some coco nibsOctober 2, 2012This is a fantastic kit to try!If you're new or versed with doppelbocks, you should definitely try this one. Normally I try to make them in the spring(German tradition), but they are great anytime of the year. Expect robust flavors with this kit, just as any doppelbock provides. I like enjoying this beer with some good dark chocolate or seared venison in a coffee crust. Highly recommend!December 4, 2012Great Doppelbock kit!This is a fantastic doppelbock kit to try whether you are new or versed with them. I normally brew this beer in the spring(German tradition) but they are great to drink year round. I like enjoying the brew with dark chocolate or coffee encrusted venison. I recommend using an English chocolate malt addition to further fortify the robustness. Expect a lot of robust flavors with this doppelbock, just as with any. Highly recommend!December 4, 2012
