Schwarzbier (Black Beer)


I hammered out this recipe after a trip to Kulmbach - it's pretty decent. It's just shy of technically being a bock by gravity and somewhat darker than a Winter Bock.


  • 1 lb Pale 2-Row Malt
  • 8 lbs Munich Malt
  • 1 lb 60 degree Crystal Malt
  • 3 oz Chocolate Malt
  • 10-12 AAUs of Northern Brewer Hops (Bittering) 45 minutes
