All Grain HomeBrew Czech Style Black Lager Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a smooth Czech Black Lager, similar to BrewDog Zeitgeist. Medium-light bodied with smooth toasted malt flavors, mild caramel sweetness a touch of chocolate, and light piney hop notes. Crisp finish with moderate bitterness. Black color comes from de-bittered black malt which adds the dark color without producing any roasty or bitter dark malt flavors.

Ingredients:

8 lbs Pilsner Malt

2 lbs Munich Light

8 oz. Caramel 80

4 oz. Chocolate

4 oz. Carafa III

Hops

1 oz. Cascade 6%a, 60 minutes

1/2 oz. Cascade 6%a, at 20 minutes

1/2 oz. Cascade 6%a, at flameout

YeastWhite Labs WLP802 Czech Budejovice Lager Yeast or Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils

Instructions:

Mash all grains for 1 hour at 150 degrees.

Ferment for about 10-14 days until primary fermentation just finishes.
