"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 90 minute boil for this style, so hold off on those hops until you are 30 minutes into boil. You may need to start with more water 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!

All included steeping grains will come milled.

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

So far so good! - Extract
I started this brew two weeks ago. After a week of vigorous fermentation the FG still has a little way to go, so on into the secondary. Tastings so far brings across a nice hop characteristic and a lot of biscuity maltiness. Can't wait for a little aging plus bottle conditioning to do its magic!
