The second installment of our new Lager Tales series. Once again a classic lager style. Originally from Munich, this German style is characterized by a light amber color, malty mouthfeel and a crispy aftertaste. Brewed with more hops and a little bit higher in the alcohol percentage, so that it would have a longer shelf life and last until the Oktoberfest, where the Märzen would be served. For this recipe we use a lot of traditional German hops on the warm side of the brewing process and no dry hop. Fermentation takes place at a low temperature, between 11C and 12C. Lager period of about 6 weeks ensures a nice, balanced end product.
