Just had the first bottle of this and I'm well chuffed!
Nicely carbonated, crisp white head, very clean taste. :drink:
4kg pilsner malt
250g carapils
250g melonoidin
40g tettnang @ 90mins
25g tettnang @ 30 mins
20g tettnang @15mins
WLP 830 German Lager yeast ( 4l starter )
90min mash @ 66oc 90min boil
OG 1.044 FG 1.010
IBU 33.5
23L into the fv. Fermented @ 12oc

Considering this has only been in the bottle for three weeks it's only going to get better.
I'm going to leave this for two more weeks and by then my proper job clone and latest wheat beer should be ready as well. :party:

Cheers

WLP830 is a good yeast for quick conditioning my lagers have been ready to drink in about 8 weeks from the mash tun. About 2 weeks at 9°C to FG then lowered 1°C per day to 4°C held for 2 weeks then kegged and lagered at 0°C for 4 weeks.

The wheat beer was a bit of a user up recipe for the hops and yeast.
3kg wheat
2kg pilsner
8g perle @ 90mins
10g tettnang @ 30 mins
10g sazz @ 15mins
Wbo6 yeast

This was a single step @ 66oc for 90mins.
I've got a bohemian pilsner planned for next Sunday and I'm going to try a a step mash for this (hochkurz ).
My old cooker just wasn't up to the job it took far to long between steps.
My new hob has a wok burner on it and has been getting me up to strike and boil temps a lot quicker so hopefully I can start trying out some step mashing on the next few brews!

Yeah, hope your right. This is what I've been aiming for since i started brewing about two years ago. To have a selection of my own beer so i don't need to buy any.
I'll be bottling the wheat today when i get home from work. Forgot to mention in the last post i pitched the yeast @ 12oc and raised to 20oc over four days as Aleman suggested in his erdinger clone so we'll see if that makes a difference.

Had the one of these last night and it's a cracking pint. I'm well chuffed with myself this is definitely the best I've brewed.
There will be a few of these going into the fridge tonight along with my proper job clone and my latest wheat beer which has also turned out a very nice beer. In fact i think I'll open a bottle of my barolo as well and have a night just drinking my own, not a shop bought in sight. :party:
