German Lager

For those who are seasonal brewing purists, this may be a strange choice to brew in mid-December. Why brew a lager in December? Well, because they’re delicious, even in January. It’s always nice to have a crisp lager on tap. And honestly, winter beers aren’t usually my favorites. High ABV, malt bombs aren’t my game right now.

In any case, I usually create my own recipes but I will admit that I totally ripped this recipe off from a recent Brulosophy Exbeeriment. Sounded like an interesting lager with the dark munich malt and wanted to try it out for myself. Here goes.
