If I were to use liquid yeast would Wyeast Bavarian Lager be a good choice? I also have access to their Munich Lager if that would be better..

If you HAD to use liquid yeast, I'd suggest 2308 Munich Lager Yeast. If you can get Saflager 34/70 though, use two packets per 5 gallons. The ease of use alone is enough to make me a believer. The quality beer it produces solidifies it as a top notch lager yeast.

Okay thanks. Are we talking about the 11.5g packets?

Yes, two of the 11.5g packets will do the trick just nicely.

Good recipe. I did this last winter. I really found out that you need to lager for at least 3 months. I plan on doing this recipe again next week.
Thanks for the recipe!

I was stationed in the Bitburg Germany area and the locals loved this brew and making cola-beir from it in the pubs. Basically a shot of cola in a mug and pour the beer second.

Just did this recipe again. OG was 1.052 for 5.5 gallon batch. I used tettnang for aroma instead of hallertrauer because that's all I had on hand. I also used two packs of 34/70 with a 2 L starter. I'm glad I did this because it took off within 12 hours. Before I only used one. It's at 51 degrees right now.

I was happy with this recipe before. This is a must brew.
