All Grain HomeBrew Smoked Helles Lager Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Smoked Helles Lager, similar to Lakefront’s Helles Rauchbier Lager. Golden colored, medium-light bodied, with smoky aromas and a clean and crisp malty finish.

Ingredients:

Malts

5.5 lbs German Pilsner

3.5 lbs Beechwood Smoked Malt

1 lb Vienna Malt

Hops

1 1/2 oz. Hallertauer 5%a, 60 minutes

Yeast: White Labs WLP860 Munich Helles Yeast or Wyeast 2206 Bavarian Lager

Instructions:

Mash all grains for 1 hour at 148 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 4-6 weeks.
