Kellerbier- the german version of British real ale. toss it in the keg once fermentation is complete, no need to wait; this is what makes the beer style. 

 

Recipe: 7.5 gallons Pre Boil, 6 gallons post boil, 72% eff.  OG: 1.066 FG: 1.012

 

mash pH 5.3. using the amber/dry water profile from bru'n water as a baseline. 

 

water highlights (ppm)

  • Calcium: 52
  • Magnesium: 10
  • Sodium: 16
  • Sulfate: 121
  • Chloride: 56
  • Bicarb:  21

Grain Bill:

8# of your favorite Pilsner 

4.75# of your favorite Lt. Munich.

*0.3# Acid malt (used this to get the pH in the correct range- optional). 

 

Mash: 122* 20 minutes, 150* 40 minutes. mash out if your up for it. 

 

Hop Bill:

60- 9 AAU Liberty (used this as a substitute for Hallertau)

10- 9 AAU Liberty

0+ 10 minute steep:  7 AAU Hallertau Miff. 

 

Yeast: WLP833 or your favorite Bavarian lager yeast. 

 

used the quick lager method: basic run down: pitch at 52*-55*. hold until you each 50% attenuation (1.038). ramp up 5* every 12 hours until you reach 68*. hold 2 days for a D-rest. cold crash, and rack to a keg, and serve. this method is optional- feel free to use a traditional lager fermentation or what you like to do for lagers.

you got it! I do carb it up to your standard serving pressure, 12 psi. at any rate, it's a solid beer- drank my fair share of Lowenbrau's keller in Germany last fall. Only beer I had there that was served in a ceramic mug; only guess is because it isn't crystal clear- poured some into a clear glass, it's a cloudy German beer that isn't wheat based. Gasp!
