AHB Maibock (Helles Bock) Beer Kit
German Beer Kit
Style: German-Style Maibock or Helles Bock
Color: Deep Golden
This is the strongest light-colored German beer style. Intense gold color with very crisp and clean flavor. Maibock is less sweet and a bit lighter-bodied than the darker traditional bock beers. Maibock also has a bit more hops, but the dominant flavor is still that of malt. With more than 9 pounds of malt extract, we don't skimp on ingredients for our bock kits! (There are a lot of weak bock kits on the market.) This lager ferments well at any steady temperature between 48-65 degrees, but thanks to the "Tuborg" yeast strain we use, you also get good results at room temperature. Bocks fermented at room temperature will benefit from some extra bottle aging time. Bock, like other strong lagers, benefits from cold aging. You should store the bottles at room temperature for at least 2-3 weeks while carbonation develops, then move the bottles to a cool place or into a refrigerator if you have space.
All our Beer Kits come in a variety of Formulations with two yeast styles and enough ingredients to make 5 Gallons. You can choose from Malt Extract with Steeping Grains, Partial Mash, and All-Grain. You also can choose between Dry and Liquid Yeast. We recommend purchasing an ice pack for liquid yeast purchases that will be shipped.
All AHB Beer Kits come with:
- Malt Extract (if applicable)
- Grains, milled
- Bottling Sugar
- Bottle Caps
- Muslin Bag (large)
- Any additional ingredients needed
