Style: German-style Traditional Bock
A strong, full-flavored lager beer. Bock beer has big malty taste, deep copper color, and medium-full body. The flavors of malt and caramel dominate the moderate amount of hops used. There is no hop aroma. With 9.5 pounds of malt extract, we don't skimp on ingredients for our bock kits! (There are a lot of weak bock kits on the market.) This lager ferments well at any steady temperature between 48-65 degrees, but thanks to the "Tuborg" yeast strain we use, you also get good results at room temperature. Bocks fermented at room temperature will benefit from some extra bottle aging time. Bock, like other strong lagers, benefits from cold aging. You should store the bottles at room temperature for at least 2-3 weeks while carbonation develops, then move the bottles to a cool place or into a refrigerator if you have space.
