The 2002 Big Brew maibock is indeed a fine beer. I hope George has a good stock of it where he is now. R.I.P.

This maibock came out quite well:
7 lbs. European Munich Light (I used Durst)
6 lbs. Eurpoean Pilsener (I used MFB)
3 oz. Hallertauer Hersbruker 3.2% 60 min
0.5 oz. Tettnanger 5.2% 20 min
0.75 oz. Tettnanger 5.2% 1 min
WLP838 Southern German Lager yeast
OG 1.070, FG 1.018, 37 IBUs

Quick question, when I put G. Fixed Mai Bock in pro-mash I came up with 38 IBU's. His recipe claimed to only have 25 IBU's! Did George already compensate for the lack of isomersation in a high OG wort, or did I screw up! and I didn't forget to change the minutes and the alpha % content to match his recipe.
The OG was different too, but my efficency is probably lower (around 70%) than his.

I think he must have used only the 60 and 30 minute hop additions to calculate bitterness. Having brewed a Maibock yesterday, the 15 minute addition seemed high for this style.

But that would still give me an IBU of 33 when the recipe called for 25. Just curious!

Here is a good starting point for a dopplebock recipe (don't have the recipe at work) for 5 gallons of dopplebock:
enough light munich malt to get to 1.072
1lb of 90l crystal
hallertau to about 24 IBU's
Wyeast Bavarian Lager yeast
This made a very good bock
