I have wanted to try my hand at an Altbier for a very long time. It’s one of those things that always seemed to get put on hold when something else came up. Yet, another great thing about these style challenges.
Not saying it forces me to finally try making it an altbier, better said “it gives me the unique opportunity” to try. (Now you see how my inner voice works when it comes to brewing beer).
It is style 7B, part of Category 7 Amber Bitter European Beer in the BJCP Style Guide.
I’ve got another strain of yeast lined up for this, White Labs WLP03 Dusseldorf Alt Ale Yeast. I’m not testing or experimenting with this yeast in this series, I’m using it on the overwhelming recommendations of homebrews both in-person and online.
Again, can’t wait to see how this comes out. It’s another style to tick off
