German Bock Extract Recipe. A complex malty flavour that is dominated by the rich flavors of Munich and Vienna malts. Some caramel notes may be present depending on how long you boil and hop bitterness is enough to balance the maltiness. No hop flavor or roasted or burnt character. A dark, complex and strong malty beer.
This simple kit consists of Pilsner and Munich extracts, Caramunich, coffee and crystal malts. Noble German hops are used for bittering and flavouring. The provided yeast is S-23 from Fermentis but you can upgrade to WLP833 liquid yeast (if available) from White Labs below. The specialty grains do not come crushed, however if you require this service it is optional, please indicate below your preference.
The ingredient list and instructions will be provided with the kit. This is a beginner/intermediate kit and you must be comfortable with brewing extract with specialty grains to ensure success with this product. Please ensure you have all of the appropriate equipment for extract brewing prior to purchasing this kit. Although we provide instructions, we are not responsible for your brewing technique.
