A powerful, rich, smooth lager beer. Malty sweet, yet balanced by hop bitterness. The flavor and aroma of true Munich malt shine through in this beer. Kit includes the most appropriate malt extract, hops (measured by HBUs, not just weight), priming sugar, caps, grains and a grain bag, and an appropriate liquid yeast culture (from White Labs). Because of its high starting gravity, this kit also includes an additional 1/2 pound of malt extract and instructions for making a 1/2 gallon yeast starter. * Please note that this beer is a true lager, and must be fermented cool (below 55 F). If you cannot maintain such temperatures, a German Ale/Kolsch yeast can be substituted for the German Lager yeast usually provided. When ordering, please mention if you would like us to make this substitution.
As this kit contains a live, liquid yeast culture, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU PURCHASE AN ICE PACK to help preserve the yeast during shipping. You will also want to open the package immediately upon receipt, and refrigerate the hops and yeast until brewing.
