Product details

Alt refers to an old-school, top-fermented style of brewing ale rather than a relatively modern bottom-fermented lager. Altbier is especially associated with the city of Dusseldorf. Alts are a bit difficult to explain to the uninitiated - kind of like a hoppy Oktoberfest? A very malty pale ale? You'll just have to try a glass of coppery-brown, rich, caramelly, and bitter ale to get the idea.

Altbier

Subbed the wyeast 1007, smack pack didn’t activate quickly enough for me so made a starter with the wort. Beer is delicious so far but taking a long time to carbonate fully. Getting there, patience, patience…

Great Fall Beer

This is a really robust, malty beer with a moderate hop finish that balances the malt nicely. Great for enjoying outside on cool Fall evenings.

Great German Altbier!

This kit was perfect! All German ingredients and the final product was above and beyond my expectations. Nice malty flavor, rich aftertaste, just enough hops. Read up on what a true German Altbier is all about, then brew this kit. Very satisfied with Northern Brewer. Absolutely will brew this again.
