I've got a Vienna malt based lager planned. But I'm going to use White Labs Belgian Lager yeast.

I'm stuck on hop choices. I've never brewed a lager before. I don't want it to be hoppy/bitter at all. I was thinking maybe a small bittering addition of northern brewer? And for aroma hops, maybe tettnanger or hallertauer?

Any help or suggestions would be great.

Northern Brewer to bitter would be fine. I typically go for the Noble hops when making lagers, but I don't think it will matter much. I use Spalt & Hallertaur in my Dark Vienna Lager, and it comes out nice, but the hops aren't adding a ton of character.

Kegged: Dunkelweizen
Primary: American Pale Ale
