Beer Recipe Homebrewing

Homebrew Recipe: Dark Altbier

This is the OTHER result (the first being the WTF?) of the mixup of some Papazian recipes. This brew is delicious. It has a dark amber color, a smooth mouthfeel with a light bitter finish, just enough hoppy flavor to complement the dark body, and a standard altbier yeastiness. Make it. It’s very good.

  • 1/2 lb chocolate 350


  • 6 lbs Amber LME


  • 2 oz Northern Brewer hops (full boil)
