From the organizer:
Did you Kansas City Bier Company’s Triple Decocted Doppelbock won a Gold Medal at the Great International Beer and Cider Competition just last week? 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, we host its KC tap debut in a wood barrel on our bar, along with other KCBC beers on Happy Hour.
Says KC Bier Co. Head Brewer, Karlton Graham, about the Doppelbock: “This bier is not only the first triple decocted lager bier ever made by KC Bier Co, but it is also made with a special kind of malt that is only ever used typically in heavily decocted bier in Germany. This Spitz Malt increases mouth feel and head retention and helps create a really silky malt character.”
Decoction Mashing is a way to conduct multi-step mashes without adding additional water or applying heat to the Mash Tun. It involves removing about a third of the Mash to another pot where it is heated to conversion temperature, then boiled and returned to the mash tun.
