Hi Denny,<br>Quesion on the Dead Fish - <br>a) Style - on Rogue they say German style Maibock, in ProMash they say Maibock/Helles Bocks are lagers - does that matter, or is there another Maibock in ProMash...Obviously it's an ale, but I like to have my ProMash recipe files *tight*.<br>b) You've used some different hops here that what Rogue has posted - Is Spalter Select a good sub for Perle and Saaz? If not, if I use your schedule, FWH and 60 min, could I just drop in those other two to get the IBU right?
