STORY:

This modern day version of an old world beer will have your “baby” singing you a song of phrase. An assertive brew, you will be blown “bock” after your first sip when you experience the robust flavors that give way to a slight hoppy bitterness that is still balanced. Bold enough to withstand many months of cold storage, this true lager is symbol of better times to come.

PROFILE:

Stronger than your typical lager, this bock has a robust character with a dark amber hue. It is very malt forward with a rich caramel sweetness balanced by a very subtle hop note. Rich and viscous, but with a clean finish, this is what a bock should taste like.

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)


NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR BEER. 

STEP 2: BREWING

Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation. 

    1. Remove the yeast packet (not needed for this recipe) from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
    2. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, then remove from heat.
    3. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the pouches of LME, and pour the contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
    4. Fill keg with cold tap water to the 4-quart mark on the back.
    5. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
    6. Sprinkle ONLY the Saflager W-34/70 yeast packet into keg, then screw on lid. Do not stir.
    7. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 48°and 59°F (9°-15°C), ideally about 55°F (12°C) and out of direct sunlight.  Ferment for 12-18 days.
    8. After approximately 2-3 days, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface.


Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 5 to 8 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal. Complete fermentation will take approximately 2 weeks.

After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your beer is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process. 

Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)
