Notes

3L starter (10.8 oz DME) with 4 smack packs needed for 800+ Billion cells.

1st in category and overall Best of Show: 2018 Hammerdown Brew Cup (Cincinnati). Have opportunity to brew a 20 bbl batch at Braxton Brewing later in early 2019.

This beer was originally brewed to the "lighter side" of the doppelbock range, but it turned out to be a great, albeit ballsy, dunkelsbock. For future brews, I will probably shave a pound or so off the Vienna/Munich combo if brewed as dunklesbock.
