Notes: This beer was one of the most excellent beers I've ever made. People who've been to Germany or lived in Germany have thought this is the closest reproduction to a German beer they've ever found in the US. It was mighty tasty and barely lasted 2 weeks in the keg. We alternate this and Altbier #1 (also in recipe database) as a regular house beer.

I brewed this last night. My Tettnang vac-sealed bag was not so sealed, and over a year old, so I tossed them and used more Hallertauer instead. I was out of wheat malt so used flaked wheat.

Wort tasted amazing - I love a beer with caramunich.

I brewed this recipe, and its best after 3-3.5 months.
