American Dark Lager Extract Recipe. A somewhat sweeter version of a standard lager with a little more body, flavor and a dark colour due to the roasted malt addition. This is a crisp beer with low bitterness and little malt character.
This simple kit consists of 2-row and rice extracts, and a dark Belgian malt as the specialty grain for flavour. Noble German are used for bittering. The provided yeast is S-23 from Fermentis but you can upgrade to WLP840 liquid yeast (if available) from White Labs below. The specialty grains do not come crushed, however if you require this service it is optional, please indicate below your preference.
The ingredient list and instructions will be provided with the kit. This is a beginner/intermediate kit and you must be comfortable with brewing extract with specialty grains to ensure success with this product. Please ensure you have all of the appropriate equipment for extract brewing prior to purchasing this kit. Although we provide instructions, we are not responsible for your brewing technique.
