    I'm finishing up my recipe and will be ordering the ingredients shortly for the biggest beer I've ever attempted to brew.

    It's a German Bock style (lager) beer but not just any old bock, nope not even a double bock, I'm going to attempt a triple Bock. It's triple the ingredients of a regular single Bock :) i'm calling it German Catholic Monk's Bread Beer because of the following story.
    Www.lordsofthedrinks.com/2016/02/11/the-all-beer-diet-german-monks-created-for-the-46-days-of-lent-fast-before-easter

    I'll post my recipe once I get it completed. It's has a huge amount of sweet malt goodness. I can't hardly wait to get it all in my kettle and start fermenting. :drool

    Until then here's a nice rich malty cold glass of German Oktoberfest homebrew.

    You seem to have found great delight in all of your brewing & wine making. Congrats! Always fun to find a hobby project to enjoy.

    Your wines look beautiful, by the way.

    I like the part of the story where the hot summer weather caused the beer to go skunky, so the pope blessed it for consumption during lent, lol!
