Dusseldorf Altbier, True to Style Mini-Mash Recipe Kit

(1 review) Write a Review

Originating in Dusseldorf Germany, this complex beer is light copper to light brown in color, has a malty, caramel flavor with a dry taste. Lagering gives this beer a clear finish with an off white head that sticks around. Enjoy a glass of this unique German beer, while imaging yourself in the altstadt on a warm spring day. 




Per the direction of Altbier expert and professional consultant in the craft brewing realm, Dorst Hornbusch, we've updated this recipe's ingredients to be even more authentic than it already was. This is a *must brew* and we certainly consider this to be a featured recipe kit. Buy it today and also make sure to check out the interview we sponsored with Horst Dornbusch on the 199th episode of the Homebrew Happy Hour podcast (link here or video below).

    Awesome, authentic flavor!

    Posted by Ronny on 19th May 2018

    This beer turned out great! Excellent flavor and body! When it says to age for 3 weeks, it's for real. I couldn't wait and tapped into it at the 2.5 week mark...too soon. It was good, but by week 4, the flavor was awesome! Hop profile really settled down. Been to Germany, not Dussedorf, but has a very smooth drink about it. Asked alot of questions, since I am new, and got alot of great info and guidance. Great place to get kits. Looking forward to them adding many new ones.
