Spaten s roots are buried in 1397, but the archiving of the company s history begins in 1800. The name is derived from the Munich brewing family of Spaeth. (Spaten means spade in German) They purchased a 225 year old brewery in 1622 and ran it for seven generations. Their first beer was sold at Munich s Hofbrauh§us in 1830. It is known as Munich s first brewery and for over 100 years Spaten Brewery has been one of the most important exporters of German beers. The brewery adheres strictly to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Optimator is Spaten s strongest beer, a bottom fermented Doppel Bock. It is matured in the brewery s deep vaulted cellars. It arrives in the glass with an off white meringue like head that sits on the deep ruby-brown beer. The nose quickly fills with smooth, sweet malt and warming alcohol. Rich and malty in the palate with alcohol a definite presence, Optimator lingers long, smooth and fulfilling.

This kit comes with two yeasts, one for primary fermentation and one that is added at the end of the secondary fermentation to ensure proper final gravity and bottle carbonation.

This clone recipe was created in 2000.
