OEC Cooship Black Lager undergoes a double decoction mash with Czech spring barley, European roasted malts (Munich, Carafa III Special) and continental noble hops (Saaz & Styrian Golding). It rests in the coolship for an hour before being transferred to the Baudelot chiller and then into open fermenters. This beer is clean! It’s a fantastic Czech dark lager.
