LICKINGHOLE CREEK CRAFT BREWERY
German Chocolate Cake
A DOPPELBOCK WITH COCOA NIBS, TOASTED COCONUT, PECANS AND VANILLA BEANS
German Chocolate Cake begins as a traditional German style Doppelbock. Brewed with German speciality grains and hops, fermented for a long period of time - it's well worth the wait. We then condition this classic German style lager over cocoa nibs, toasted coconut, vanilla and pecans!
Bottle Size: 750ml
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Flaked Barley, Munich, Pilsner, Wheat, Pale Chocolate, C-10
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
