German-Style Heller Bock/Maibock - All Grain
Left nut says go all Munich base. Right nut says use mostly pils. They're both nuts, so let's go halfway. First formulation for a maibock/helles. Need to come up with a better name. Seriously, that's all I got? - M

Infusion Step: Mash at 157 °F (69 °C) for 60 minutes.
Single step infusion, towards the high end to leave some residual sweetness. Bock should really be decoction mashed, but I'm fucking lazy. Maybe I'll have a change of heart when I'm brewing it, but this program doesn't let you enter a step mash anyhow.
Hold in primary fermentor for 21 days at 50 °F (10 °C).
Transfer to secondary fermentor for 60 days at 36 °F (2 °C).
Allow to carbonate and age for 7 days at 38 °F (3 °C).
