Traditional Bock


I brewed a high-gravity bock last weekend, and wonder what I can do toget as complete a fermentation as possible. My SG reading was 1.136, part of which I think is attributable to some trub in my sample, but it still is chock full of fermentables. I pitched Wyeast London Ale, cause it's what I had.


  • 8 pounds, pale malt
  • 1 pound, Vienna malt
  • 1/2 pound chocolate malt
  • 2--1/2 pounds, dark extract syrup
