(Makes 5 gallons) German for "old ale", Altbiers are a German version of Brown Ale. A malty beer with a firm bitterness. This beer can be further enhanced by cold aging for a month or two. It is rare to find a good commercial example of Altbier in the U.S. The malt extract for this kit is made entirely from Pilsner Malt, giving it that classic European flavor.
