Extract with Specialty Grains Homebrew Kit

This is a classic example of a German Altbier. Made famous in the German city of Dusseldorf, Altbier has a deep copper color and a very smooth and rich malt, caramel character made possible by the liberal use of German Malts. The malt is balanced by a very firm bitterness from the Magnum and Tettnang hops. As German Ales go this is one of the more hoppy styles.

1 lb Aromatic Malt

8 oz CaraMunich III

3 oz Carafa II

6 lb Pilsner LME

1 oz Magnum (Bittering)

1 oz Tettnang (Flavoring)

We highly recommend purchasing dry yeast during the warmer months. While we offer a complimentary ice pack with all liquid yeast orders, the combination of warmer temperatures and shipping times makes it difficult for your liquid yeast to remain chilled.

Great taste

Just an excellent bier. Great flavors, rich and smooth like it states without it being bitter, almost sweet aftertaste. Fermenting a second batch right now and can't wait to keg it and enjoy it.
