(Makes 5 gallons) German for "old ale", Altbiers are a German version of Brown Ale. A malty beer with a firm bitterness. The yeast, Whitelabs WLP011 European, does not produce many esters so the style is low in fruitiness for an Ale. This is 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 German Pilsner Malt, giving it that classic European flavor.Estimated Original Gravity:1.051-54SRM (Color Range: 16IBU's: 29-31Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 5% Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags or yeast.
