Vodeez Can't Fail Pale....Bock
Recipe added: 11/17/00
This was my first all-grain beer and I blew through the sparge in about 10 minutes. My boss at the Brewstore, a certified beer judge, and GOLD medal MEAD winner at the 2000 AHA competition loved the malt profile and said he would give it 40 out of 50 pts. Thus the name Can't Fail Pale. I have since made 3 other all-grains, and with much improved sparge technique, am taking another run at this one. Like most beers..this one only gets better with age.
