I've been to Dusseldorf many times and drank all of the alts there. This one is very tasty and I think a great example.

On my last trip there I made friends with one of the brewers at Im Fuchschen, and he took me on an extended tour / drinking part of the basement brewery. I came home with yeast, with which I made this beer. I think any malt-forward yeast would work (i.e., english yeasts).

Here's some pics and video from my last trip there: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/dusseldorf-altbier-brewery-visit-fuchschen-pics-youtube-282538/

Alt is one of the next two on my list...ingredients are en route. I'm brewing a recipe very similar to the Cowboy Alt in Brewing Classic Styles.

I might try that one myself. I was totally satisfied with my alt here, but I'll try one with munich next time. Although JZ uses munich, it wasn't on the grain bill at the brewery that I visited, and I was trying as much as possible to recreate that one.

So, did you brew your alt?

PP, what were your water numbers after the addition of the gypsum? Looking to do an Alt soon and your recipe looks good.

Water chemistry? I've never paid any attention. I usually add gypsum to hoppy beers, but honestly I don't know why. Water chemistry mostly remains a mystery for me; I do things by memory and not by understanding when it comes to that.
