Doppelbock Bread

Recipe. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/04/magazine/recipe-doppelbock-bread.html

The bread isn't that interesting and I don't plan to make it again, but I've found a new favorite beer!

Mein gott!

Who knew they made beer that good and that strong?!

Spaten Optimator. (1 of these is like 5 of any other another beer.)

Doppelbock is ca. 9% alc, can be more, normal beer is about 4.2%

The story: During lent in catholic areas the monks (who often were the brewers) had to reduce their beer intake...

so they had to increase the alcohol content ...

Same net effect.
