    German vocabulary question

    Hallo! I was in brewing class today and my professor mentioned top cropping the yeast. I use to remember a fair bit of German brewing terms but I can’t remember what the word for it was. Of course it was a string of words put together. I remember the direct translation being something like...

    Trumer Pils recipe?

    What is Kirtabier?

    While killing time this morning, I landed on this page: When I searched for Kirtabier I found lots of pages that quote, without reference, the Ayinger page. I've never heard of Kirtabier before, and wonder if this is a style or simply a trademark. If...
