A few times every year, Altbier brewpubs in Dusseldorf brew a one-off batch that is stronger and hoppier than their regular ale and put it on tap unannounced and unadvertised; they call it Sticke ("secret"). Now you can replicate this clandestine specialty and enjoy it at peak freshness; whether or not you choose to tell your friends is up to you. Clean, dry and malty with yeast-bread overtones and a firm hop bitterness, this beer is a bit darker, bigger, and has a larger hop aroma than our traditional German Alt. Shhhh!
Recommended:2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.
