7th in the Series



"Before the microbrew revolution took hold, Canadian lagers like Moosehead and Molson were considered "the good stuff." Possesing a more interesting hop profile than the lagers produced by their neighbors south of the border, Canadian-style lagers are crisp, refreshing, and very drinkable".


6 pounds Canadian 2 row malt

1/2 pound flaked barley

1 1/2 ounces Pride of Ringwood hops for bittering

1 ounce Kent Golding hops for flavor

1 package American lager yeast

3/4 cup corn sugar for priming



Mash crushed grains for 60 to 90 minutes.

Collect 6 gallons of wort.

Add Pride of Ringwood hops and boil for 1 hour, adding Kent Golding hops for the last 30 minutes.

Cool wort and pitch yeast.

Primary ferment for at 50 to 55 degrees for 5 to 7 days.

Transfer to secondary fermenter. Lager for 2 to 3 weeks.

Bottle using corn sugar. Age in bottle 10 to 14 days.

    Great beer recipes! Looking forward to new ones every Monday. So, I just found out that Flying Dog is allowing beer drinkers and homebrewers to create and recommend changes and modifications to their next beer recipe which is going to be a kick-ass German-style Stong Dopelbock. The recipe starts off as a simple Doppelbock recipe. Visit Open Source Beer Project for the rest of the info.

    I am wanting to start brewing, this recipe sounds interesting, I am wondering what "type" of beer catagory it would fall into. Can someone enlighten me?
