A Dark Black Brew that does not hold back!
All ingredients can be had through Northern Brewer.
Boil the following:
MM Rye Malt Syrup 3.15 lb. bottle
Muntons Extra Light DME 1lb.
Briess Blackprinz Malt - 1 lb. crushed
Weyermann Chocolate Rye - 1 lb. whole
English Crystal Rye Malt - 1 lb. crushed
Briess Pale Ale Malt - 1 lb. whole
Crisp Amber Malt - 1 lb. crushed
Brewing Salts - 1 oz.
Water 5-8 Gallons.
Add at the end of the boil:
Bitter Orange Peel - Tablespoon (Optional)
Star Anise - Tablespoon (Optional)
Ferment for 2-3 months, prime & bottle.
Note that Lager is a Cold Fermenting Yeast, though I used the most heat tolerant Lager available. Last Winter (January-March) was cold enough.
