Description

"Ever since the first alt bier hit my lips I've been hooked on this style! Germany has alot more to offer than just their lagers and this is a great example!" Ryan recommends a step mash. He likes to dough-in at 130F for a 15 minute Protein Rest, and then raise to sacharification rest of 154F for 60 minutes before mashing out at 168F. He likes a 45-60 minute sparge with 170F liquor. Ryan also recommends a 90 minute boil for this style, so hold off on those hops until you are 30 minutes into boil. You may need to collect more wort than you normally would to compensate for the additional boil-off. Ferment at 62-64 for 2 weeks in primary, and lager or 4-8 weeks at 40F if you can keep your hands off it for that long. Prost!

Wife loves it, good as a lager or ale
I rarely lager but I've done both with this beer. Both came out quite good. But I'll stick to ale.

My first lager
Brewed this baby for the first lager I ever made. To this day, I still have people (German friends, even!) tell me it was the best altbier they'd ever had.
