pleasantly surprised by this bottled l*ger. It has a nice malty character. Allegedly based on how the german immigrants brewed it when they came to the US. It's available in a few pubs now. I had it in the Windmill.

It's a good beer. A tweaked Vienna Lager, brewed with American hops. Not quite in keeping with the brewing of American immigrants as it uses Cascade, which wasn't available before 1972.

I have a clone recipe, from the brewer, somewhere.

I recently had this in Giraffe (Cabot Circus). Nice little beer. I'd be interested to see the recipe, Ali.

I got the recipe from the man himself. Give me some time to translate it to something that makes sense for homebrewers....after the NYCHG party tonight....

I'll tell you now though:

Grist is:
2-row Pale
Munich
Caramel

Hops are:
Vanguard
Halertau Mittefruh
Cascade
Saphir

House yeast (running since the late '70s), but Wlp 800, 820 or 830 would do.

13 Plato (OG 1.052)
33 IBU




-----

More to follow....

Caramel 60L 6%

Willamette 14 IBU at 75 min
Cascade 6 IBU at 35 min
Vanguard 6 IBU at 35 min

Saphir 2.5 IBU at 2 min
Cascade 1g/litre dry hop 10 days
