John Q. Adams Marblehead Lager Extract Beer Recipe Kit
This golden-amber beer sports balanced hops and malt, noble aromas, and a clean finish.
Brewers, patriots, countrymen: lend us your tankards. This golden-amber beer sports balanced hops and malt, noble aromas, and a clean finish. A complex but approachable mix of spicy German hops and ripe-fruit-sweet caramel malt interweave across your nose and palate from the first whiff to the last sip. An excellent session beer that still has enough going on in the glass for contemplative sipping if the mood should take you.
It's technically not an ale, but we use Wyeast California Lager yeast in this recipe so you can ferment it at ale temps and still achieve a clean, lager-like result.

I used the Kviek Lutra yeast and brewed in a basement at 68-72ish degrees in a Catalyst conical fermenter and it turned out *amazing*. A great easy drinking beer. I kegged it and served it when guests came over and it was a hit with the beer snobs and the Miller-lite crew alike. It wasn't *technically* a lager, but darn close enough that it's an amazing option for lager-lovers who don't have fermentation temperature control.
Not sure, I am not sure what you do to increase the time it takes to brew a lager, but the way I do it takes time. Therefore, I will not know how good it is until next week. Cheers
Love This beer and soda while my friends. I will definitely be continuing to brew it!
This is a good, simple beer. Easy drinking, good for the summer.
