The ATF Altbier is a malty sweet beer with caramel and biscuit flavours; a firm balancing bitterness, and a medium dry finish. Complementing the malt flavours and aroma is a pleasant and mild noble hop earthy spiciness and subtle fruity vinous character.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using one packet of Fermentis Safale K-97 yeast.
To achieve the subtle fruit character it is important to use the recommended yeast or another German/Kolsch Ale yeast.
Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to the recommended quantity for the batch size.
