    First Marzen

    Haven’t really brewed for a good 6 months but I’m trying to get a recipe for a good Marzen.

    Hops for Märzen?

    I have a good recipe for old Märzen which uses Saaz hops, but I think my IBU is a tad low (8-ish). I was thinking of maybe trying Hallertauer or Tettnanger this Christmas. Thoughts & opinions?
