Munchen Hofbrau Original

Postby wobdee » Mon Mar 27, 2017 8:09 am

Asked Hofbrau if they had any tips for a homebrewer to brew something close to this beer and surprisingly they responded.

90/10 Pils/Munich (such as Briess Bonlander)
Magnum hops 50% at 58', 40% at 30', 10% at whirlpool
W34/70
Ferment at 9c 6 days, cool to 7c, krausen and mature at -1c
OG 11.8

I'm surprised by the Magnum hops, I was thinking something Nobel.

I've brewed helles using this grist before, although I used saaz and mittelfruh hops. It's quite nice.

Here's the email they sent me. All o asked is whether they could give me some tips on brewing Hofbrau Original. I also said I was looking forward to their collaboration brew with Leinenkugels for the 150 year anniversary.

thank you very much for your inquiry. Well, brewing a beer with a long brewing tradition in as a home brewer might be quite a difficult project. However,
we will provide you with some informations about the brewing details:

We use about 90% barley malt and 10% munich malt (quite similar in the US is Briess bonlander).
Hops: 50% 58‘ BKO Magnum, 40% 30‘ BKO and 10% added into the whirlpool.
The brew is coming out with 11,8% o.g.
Our bottom fermenting yeast is W34/70
Fermentation at 9°C, about 6 days; cooling to 7°C, 10% Kräusen, Maturation another 5 days at 9°C, storage -1,5°C for 3 weeks.

As a matter of fact, it’s very difficult to produce similar beers without using the same brewhouse equipment and vessels.
But we wish you all the best and enjoy the collaboration brew with Leinkugel.

I'm pretty sure they filter so I think it may be wise to cut back the Munich a tad. They didn't say anything about IBUs so I sent a reply for that info,

It was very interesting how he mentioned about brewing in a certain type of vessel now I'm really anxious to get my book from plb because I know that there's a section or two in there that describes certain vessels
