Calebs Creek Dortmunder Export

Recipe added: 11/05/99

This beer is all about the decoction mash, in my opinion. I don't have access to good European malts in my area, so this surely helps achieve the necessary malt profile in my case. This one weighs in @ around 5.7% ABV, 24 IBU, and 4.2 SRM; a strong, golden-coloured, well-balanced beer!
