International Black Lager

Recommended Posts

Something a little different for me -- I actually brewed this one already and had my first bottle tonight after just 3 weeks in the bottle.  This is another mostly grain recipe and features a fun grain bill, Nugget bittering, lager yeast, and turned out really nice. :)

Weyermann Bohemian Pilsner Malt, 2 lbs.

Malting Co. of Ireland Lager malt, 1 lb.

Nugget hops, 0.3 oz, 45 min.

Crystal hops, 0.5 oz, 15 min.

Felt the need to break this out again when I saw the word TWANG...

Ladies and gentlemen.  Conway Twitty.

Putting up my IBL against a bottle of New Belgium 1554 -- the 1554 is lighter in color, maltier, and finishes 'craftier', but mine is nearly black, funkier, and a close second!?
