Posted by: @ 8:44 am

Starting up a new yeast, this time instead of German Bock, we have German Lager yeast from white labs. Jenny Jump spring water.Lowered the amount of base malt because our OG has been coming in too high.

8 lbs Avangard Pils malt
2 oz Acidulated malt
1 oz Tetnanger (mash)

Decoction mash, mashing in at 120F and slowly raising to 155 before decocting to raise to mash out temp.

30 IBU Northern brewer 9.9 Alpha
1 whirlfloc tablet 15 mins boil

OG 12.4 Plato

Starter of white labs german lager yeast
