Beer Style: Doppelbock (5C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons



I've had great luck with this one. This is one of those brews that gets better with age. It is also best cold lagered for 3+ months (if you can stand it). You also want to be sure to pitch tuns of yeast (i.e. use at least a 1 qt. starter, preferably 2 qts.)


  • 10 pounds 2 row malt
  • 3 pounds munich malt
  • 1/2 pound toasted malt
  • 1/2 pound chocolate malt
  • 1/4 pound roasted barley
  • 1/4 pound black patent malt
  • 1/2 crystal malt 90L
  • 4 ounces Tettenger boiling hops (60 min)
  • 1/2 ounce Tettenger finishing hops (10 min)
  • Yeast Labs Bavarian Lager Yeast
