Bottled my Munich Helles today. Due to a combination of very good conversion and highly fermentable wort, I got a 6.7% beer out of it. And it’s good. Really good. Can hardly wait for this one to carb up so I can drink one. Or many.
Meanwhile, the other Lagerthon beer, the Schwarzbier, is nearly ready. Basically I can bottle it any time I want. It’s roasty and dark and dry, a very good black lager, if a bit too roasty for a classic Schwarz. But then, the Koestritzer I had fresh in Germany last week was a little weak, lame. I like mine. It pushes the style to the point where it’s just about out of style but it’s a bit like my German: Fluent, but with an American accent.
