Beer Style: Weizenbock (15C)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 gallons
I'm not sure about the "authenticness", but who cares? It turned out really good! Fruity and dark with a very noticeable alcohol smell.
Prepare according to the standard Papazian method for extract beers. Starting gravity: 1.61 Starting Potential alcohol: 9% Ending gravity: 1.16 Ending Potential alcohol: 2% Primary and Secondary fermentation took 1 month. I believe that the high alcohol content (7%) pickled the yeast and stopped fermentation in it's tracks. Bottled with 1 1/4 cup DME.
