Prototype: Zwickel Helles

Alc Vol. 5.0%
PROTOTYPE
A LIGHT CRISP ZWICKEL HELLES

Lager. It’s Germany’s gift to the world. As we celebrate the opening of BrewDog DogTap Berlin with a trio of Prototypes to make its final line-up – we had to brew a Helles. As golden as a Spree-side sunrise, this beer is Berlin in microcosm. Floral, balanced, dry and with malt driven sweetness merging into a refreshing, crisp finish this is everything you want from German beer and more.

Dig out your Maßkrug and decide whether our friends in Berlin will be drinking this every day or not…

The Brew Sheet

ABV
5.0

Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)

IBU
20

International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)

OG
1.047

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.

Style
Lager

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

Malts
Carapils, Pilsner, Carahell

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
Saphir, Simcoe, Melon

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!

INGREDIENTS

water, malted barley, hops, yeast.
