Just quality checking my dunkels bock before the October competition. This was the first beer I made following my Orval clone and I'm picking up just the slightest hint of brett in this. It's actually nice though, adds an interesting little background note and in case Samale sees this... um... it was intentional :rolleyes:
You are really selling this all munich dunkels bock...

Speaking of munich I have been thinking about doing a lower alcohol belgian psuedo-trippel. Think I can use munich as the basemalt to give it a rich flavour while keeping it around 5%? Will probably use the westmalle yeast.

I have to say I really fell in love with Munich malt this year, it's so good in a German lager.

Not sure about using it as a base in a tripel, but the light toasty maltiness might be good in a dubbel. A low abv tripel sounds like a single to me, is that the sort of thing you're going for?

Yeah exactly but with a little more body to balance the low abv and higher carbonation levels. The few singles I have had taste a bit thin and bland.

Althought your quad recipe on the main page looks great too.... Hmmm maybe a low abv dubbel?

Was also surprised how good the head was, usually it takes a few weeks to get nice tight bubbles, not so in this and it stuck all the way down the glass. Only extra pale, pale malt and crystal too


I'm planning a saison, going to use chevallier malt and brett it at bottling. Not made one in far too long

Spoiling myself tonight as I went to chill our local best ale stockist and spent £17 on 6 beers but if they go by this first from Larkin's of wicklow it will be good. Lemondrop and cascade pale made with Vienna and Cascade and its delicious, not to bitter and not too sweet and the hops are bursting through.

I agree with you there, single isn't really to my taste for that reason (although I think Westy Blond is considered a single and so might be an exception).

A low abv dubbel sounds good, I imagine it like a dark mild with some Belgian spice :beer1:

What's the abv range for a dunkel. I have one conditioning that is 7%

It has been brought to my attention that I served this lager in a dirty glass due to the co2 bubbles clinging to the sides.

Please forgive my faux pas as I rinsed the glass after another lager, dried it with a tea towel and polished the finger prints out with kitchen roll. (Tea towel must of been greasy) 😁
I shall endeavour to serve in a clean glass in future and thanks Terry,
You learn something new every day 👍😉
This is how you check if a glass is beer clean:


After the salt test, grab a kitchen towel and scrub the the salt around the glass then rinse under the tap and then you're done. Don't let your glass be washed with soap or put in the dishwasher again.

All my beer photos are from glasses prepared like that.
