Default Citrusy Alt bier

12 gal. batch

80 min boil
14lbs pilsener
4lbs munich malt
2lbs aromatic malt
1lbs caramunich 60
.38 crafa special 1

Mash at 149 for 60 mins
Target OG of 1.046 to 1.054 depending on eff.
I got 1.054 because I ended up with 11 gallons instead of 12

4 oz sladek hops 80 mins
1 oz sladek hops 15 mins

wyeast kolsch yeast.

ferment at 62 degrees for 2 weeks
cold condition at 50 degrees 4weeks

I had this beer at a local homebrew club oktoberfest. It was my favorite. Lots of orange notes in the hops. Very light and crisp from the cold fermentation and conditioning. If you can't get sladek hops you can use NZ pacific hallertau hops. They also have a very orange flavor profile with the same 5% AA rating.

I just made 11 gallons today.
