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.

The kit directions are very easy to follow, I was delayed with brewing this beer due to shipping issues than a crazy heat wave after the kit arrived. I just recently bottled and of course had to sample while I was bottling. It tasted great, would definitely pay $8 for a pint at a brewery.

A little disappointed...

The beer has a good taste, but it's not really consistent. Some bottles are clear, some hazy. The dry yeast fermented violently for 2 days and quickly slowed to where I thought it may have stopped. This is only my third brew, but I felt that was weird. I may brew it again, but not with the dry yeast.
