    I don't really know where to start. Other than this.

    I need some Munich and pilsner malt

    Maybe some chocolate malt or caramunich?

    Hops:
    Some combination of Saaz, Spalt, Styrian Golding, Hallertau Mittelfrüh or Tettnanger hops

    I think the mash has to be some sort of double decoction.

    I guess a German lager yeast

    I've heard there are a couple people on this site that like malt. Maybe they can help

    I have a Dopplebock ale recipe on here .... "Debacle"
    Loose (or cut back) on the late addition hops and use a lager yeast
    done
    Never attribute to malice, that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.

    assuming 5 gallons, this is what i would go for:

    all dark munich for the base, ~4oz caramunich, ~1-2 oz pale chocolate malt, maybe an ounce of special b.
    definitely decocotion, and use the spalt or styrian for bittering and a half ounce or so of mittelfrau at 15.

    but that's tailored to my personal taste in doppelbock: dark, rich, and malty.

    i think this is also what I'm looking for. I was thinking in my head something kind of like celbrator.

    Sorry, I don't have any valuable input here. That just sounds good.
