Thanks for the recipe Greencoat!

I've brewed this half a dozen times now. One of my favorites. I used Wyeast 2565 but otherwise followed the recipe. Turns out great every time. I have a tap on the kegorator dedicated to it now.

To think I was unaware of Altbiere for years makes me sad. My Dad was born and raised in Northern Germany but wasn't old enough to drink the local brew before he emigrated. Great to be able to serve him a beer from the Fatherland, as commercial examples are almost non-existent around here. He loves this recipe too BTW...

Cheers!

Thanks for the recipe. I brewed this July 11th, put it in my lager fridge on the 29th, and kegged it up the other night after a month in the cold. I'm drinking my first brew off the tap as I write this. Tastes great. Easy drinker with enough flavor to satisfy.

Cheers

3rd day fermenting, started at 65-66 degrees for 2 days, now it's at 70-72. Used Wyeast 1007 with a starter, also threw a Whirfloc tablet in there. My OG was around 1.058-1.060. Can't wait to try this beer!

Thanks for the recipe! This was my first attempt at brewing anything. Decided to jump straight into all grain and kegging and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I didn't exactly hit the OG with my efficiency but have since figured out what I was doing wrong with the batch sparge. Regardless, this is one tasty session brew!

This will be the first AG brew I try. We have a local brewery that makes an alt that is fantastic and I'm looking forward to trying this one out. Thanks for the recipe!

What was your water chemistry on this brew?

Vorlauf and collect first runnings.

Sparge with 5.1 gallons @ 177F.

Collect second runnings and prepare to boil.

Boil is 90 mins.

1 oz Hallertauer (4.7%aa) @ 90 min for 15 IBUs
3 oz Saaz (3.3%aa) 30 min for 22 IBUs

Cool to ~63F and pitch a vial of WLP029 - German Ale/Kölsch yeast.

I didn't do a starter for my batch and it seemed to work fine at such a low starting gravity.

This worked out to be 4.7%ABV and makes for a very tasty session beer, and it scored me a gold metal and first in show. Cheers!
I was trying my own version of this recipe with ingregients readily available to me. For hops I used Perle and replaced the pils malt with canadian 2 row but used the same of everything else. The yeast worked for a couple of days (I used a starter) and then it just stopped. I took a reading on Wednesday and it was 1.22 and I took another reading today (friday) and it was the same. Should I add some more yeast?
