All Grain HomeBrew Czech Style Black Lager Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a smooth session-style Czech Black Lager, similar to Notch Cerne Pivo. Light-bodied with smooth toasted malt flavors, mild caramel sweetness and a light earthy 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:

Malts

8 lbs Munich Light

10 oz. Carafa III

8 oz. Crystal 40

Hops

1/2 oz. Northern Brewer 9%a, 60 minutes

1/2 oz. Mt Hood 5%a, at 20 minutes

1/2 oz. Mt Hood 5%a, at 10 minutes

Yeast: White Labs WLP802 Czech Budejovice Lager Yeast or Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils

Instructions:

Mash all grains for 1 hour at 150 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Chill down to 50F and pitch yeast.

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

Diacetyl Rest: Raise beer temp to 62-65F for 2-3 days.

Rack to keg or secondary and start cold-aging process. If possible taper temperature down 5-7 degrees per day from Diacetyl rest to 35F. Cold age at 35F for 3-4 weeks.
