Altbier

Premium-Series recipe kit from Annapolis Home Brew.

Style: Düsseldorf-style Altbier
ABV: 5.0%
Color: Copper

A copper-colored, medium-bodied, German-style ale with lots of malt flavor. Altbier means old beer in German, from the fact that altbier is fermented with an ale yeast, which lager-loving Germans consider old-fashioned. This beer has a more clean crisp taste compared to American or British amber ales. Hop bitterness and aroma are moderate, with malt being the primary flavor. Our recipe includes two varieties of imported German hops combined with a German-style malt extract & specific German altbier yeast strain.  This results in a much more authentic beer than the cheaper and more commonly used British or American ingredients.

Premium Series recipe kits will arrive with a printed content list.  This is ideal for brewers who need detailed information for their log book or brewing software.  Includes all ingredients and detailed instructions.  Makes 5 gallons using normal homebrew equipment.

Brewmaster's Secret kits don't include a detailed list of contents, because they're secret!  These exclusive recipes can be found nowhere else.  Everything is labelled for ease of use, but may not be the best choice if you require full detail for logbook or brewing software.  Makes 5 gallons using normal homebrew equipment.
