Notes:


Beer style: Imperial Lager / European Strong Lager, aka liquer de malte. This is not an "official" recipe of the Chappelle Show, but was merely inspired by it. :) It's purpose is to make a double-strength Samuel Adams.

Distilled water / 1 gallon regular water blend.

New mini-decoction method:
Infuse grain @ 140F, rest 20 minutes
Take out 40% of the grain (thick mash), bring grain to a boil
Boil the grain no longer than 30 minutes, or as long as it takes before the grain gets sticky / potentially scorchable.
Return grain to tun -- should be 156-158F. Rest another 20-30 minutes
Draw out about 1 gallon of wort -- bring to boil
Add back to tun -- should bring mash temperature to 170F. Recirculate, then sparge.

Flavor is the bastard child of a doppelbock and an imperial pilsner, in the end, to my buds.

Water choice: Deer Park
