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.
Ingredients included in this kit (Please note: only use the amount recipe calls for as some ingredients may have extra):
1 lb Aromatic Malt
8 oz CaraMunich III
3 oz Carafa II
6 lb Pilsner LME
1 lb Amber DME
1 oz Magnum (Bittering)
1 oz Tettnang (Flavoring)
2 large muslin bags
Recommended Yeast (NOT INCLUDED IN KIT)
Wyeast 1007 German Ale
Safale US-05 Dry Yeast
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.
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.
