I fell in love with a Maibock from the August Schell's brewery last summer and when they put it on hold until this spring, I found myself searching for something similar. This kit did the trick. I took 12 into work and my coworkers finished it off, many claiming it was not only the best home brew they ever had, but one of the best beers they had ever had. _x000D__x000D_My brother, who won't drink anything unless it's in a red and white can with black letters, tried one and wasn't a fan so if you are used to the swill that makes up 85% of your grocery store shelves, you probably won't like the full flavored goodness that you get when this brew is ready to down._x000D__x000D_It ended up a bit more hoppy than I had expected (I am not a hop head) but that may have been my hops timing. The one drawback to this kit is the length of time it takes to get the brew from the brew kettle into your stomach. Having been used to mostly brewing light ales, 2 week fermentation, 2 week bottle conditioning, having to wait nearly 8 weeks total from brew to cracking open the first one was killing me....but I'm impatient, was excited to try it, and just couldn't wait. _x000D__x000D_At nearly $10 more than some of the other kits I've tried, I had to ding this review down to 4 stars on price but in terms of value, quality, and the wonderful beer you get once it's finally ready, this is an outstanding, smooth, not-too-dark beer that makes my face and belly happy. Thumbs up.

A fine spring summer fall beer
I've brewed this beer 3 years in a row. I typically brew it in January and lager it in an unheated closed room. Bottle it in mid April and it is ready for early summer. Nothing better on a hot summer day.

Used less hops, turned out great
The 2 ounces of Hallertauer hops that came with this kit had an AA rating of 7.5%. I thought boiling 2 ounces of this hop for 60 minutes would make a maibock way to hoppy. I only used 1 ounce from the kit. This beer turned out great. A great kit but note the AA level of the hops in your kit.

Very drinkable(dangerously drinkable)
Very good beer. Don't let the "Bock" fool you. Much lighter mouthfeel than I expected. Not a big fan of Lagering but it was well worth it. It produced a clean light feeling beer but very strong. The hops were a bit overstated but I am a hophead so it didn't bother me. Next winter I will be brewing an all grain version of this beer and saving it for a party in May. This year it didn't make it that far.

First Lager
This was my first attempt at a lager as I do not have a second fridge in my house. I started it in January and put it down on the concrete floor of the laundry room until I bottled in late March. It lagered at about 52 degrees and the gravity was spot on, so as I crack open the first one this evening the ABV is in the 7% neighborhood._x000D__x000D_It has a wonderful color and aroma and the flavor is balanced to match. I must say that they wait has been worth it. I was a bit aprehensive about not having a fridge to lager in even though just about every reputable source everywhere tells you that the colder climates can get away with lagering on the basement floor. This method seemed to work wonderfully._x000D__x000D_This is probably one of the smoothest beers that I have brewed in my 2 plus years of brewing. I dont know that the 2 cases will make it all the way to May!!

Very good, more hops than expected
This turned out great, but seems much hoppier than I thought it would be. But I still like it, a LOT.

Excellent beer
First Lager I made. Love it. Worth the wait - will make again and can drink EVERY month, not just May. ;~)

wurtzberger maibock
Very nice for a kit. I recommend using premium yeast for this beer. Mine finish light with a very good mouth feel and body. Family liked it a lot.

This is good! I have tried other bocks, and did not care for the flavor. This beer was light and crisp...I love it!

Just brewed this but not tasted it yet. BrewR app has the IBUs at only 9...Anybody thoughts on whether it may need more hops to be true to style?

BEST ANSWER: I have brewed this beer a number of times and am satisfied with results. This is one of my favorites. However, I have been brewing for over 20 years and change recipes around from time to time to experiment. Everyone is different and our tastes change. There are no set rules.
