Created By: Chase Pearce
Estimated OG: 1.072
Estimated ABV: 6.6%
Estimated IBU: 34.68
Estimated Color: 10 SRM

5 gallons - All Grain

9.4 pounds Pilsner Malt

2 pounds Carahell

1 ounce Magnum Hops for 30 min.

2 ounces Northern Brewer Hops for 10 min. 

2 ounces Hersbrucker Hops Dry hop

This Maibock was inspired by a desire to explore styles of beer not traditionally found in the American industry. It is made with all German style malt and hops to maintain an orthodox profile with the twist of dry hopping. The beer is named in honor of St. Joseph, as May 1st is dedicated to him and his patronage over workers. This beer pairs well with Swiss Cheese and Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
