Schimpft (Jubel Clone)

Source: Tom Meier
Recipe added: 08/29/01

This recipe was a 2nd Place winner at a recent Homebrew Competition that had 260 entries. Just for kicks, I entered it in both the Scottish Export and Northern German Altbier categories. It scored a 19 in the Scottish export, and a 35 in the NG Altbier category. (37 from a national judge) Some judges comments from the Scottish category: "This beer may be a bit OLD" <- old was underlined, heh "hops were stale" "needs more malt aroma" "band-aid like aroma" "low levels of DMS?" "this tastes oxidized" Some judges from the Altbier category: "clean, no off aromas" "malt nose is too much" "clean finish" "nice beer. clean, flavorful" "great malt nose" "a very nice beer" "a little thin in body and creaminess" (How can a North German Alt be considered too thin?? especially with 7 POUNDS of Munich??) This recipe tastes so much like Jubel, that I would not change a single thing. It is a great recipe, and I plan on brewing it regularly, despite what the critics say.
