Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Head Brewer:
“Thanks to Imperial Yeast, we are proud to offer this recipe kit formulated around the Mexican lager yeast strain Que Bueno. What is otherwise a simple pilsner-style beer is taken to the next level with this impressively clean and crisp lager yeast. The key to brewing this beer is all about the yeast - pitching a large amount of yeast and ensuring it is provided proper fermentation temperatures will make this a truly memorable beer. While Imperial Yeast does provide 200 billion cells in each package, making a yeast starter or pitching multiple packs of yeast is recommended for the best results. If you prefer to use dry yeast, that's cool too, as the same recommendations still apply. This beer may take a while to make, but the end result is worth it. If you have the patience to let this beer lager for the full 4 weeks as outlined in the instructions, you will end up with a bright, clean, clear, crisp lager with minimal esters and a satisfying dry finish. Kick back, soak up the sun and bask in the glory of your delicious homemade Mexican-style lager.”
This came out wonderful. Fermented at 53 for 2 1/2 weeks. Brought upstairs and kept at 68 for 3 days. Bottled. Then 2 weeks later lagered for a month.
This all grain kit turned out very delicious and is even better with a squeeze of lime in your glass. Very worth the wait to lager. I used the Que Bueno yeast and final product was on point. Everyone who tried it keeps asking me to make more (especially the hubby). Great beer!
I have not been able to brew this beer yet, but when I do I will send you a review. I did brew the wheat beer and it turned out great. Joseph.
This is a really tasty beer true to the style. My only minor complaint is that the hops included in the kit were low alpha and therefore the amount included was insufficient. I added some hops to reach the style guideline for bitterness. I will buy this kit again!
One of the best beers I have brewed in the last 3 years. Watch your temperatures and results will be fantastic. For a little extra flavor I threw in about 1/3 oz. of leftover Hallertauer at the 5 min point and added the added the 5 min hops at flame out. I tinker and can't follow recipes to the letter. The primary and secondary times are long but don't take shortcuts.
