The ATF Vienna Lager is a reddish amber coloured malt forward beer that showcases Vienna malt’s toasty character. It has a full malt flavour with a mild sweetness and dry finish. There is sufficient bitterness to balance the beers malty character and a low amount of earthy grassy noble hop aroma.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using Mangrove Jack's Bavarian Lager yeast if fermented cold. Alternatively you could try SafLager W-34/70 or Lalbrew Diamond Lager.
If you are unable to perform a cold fermentation you can ferment warm (20℃) using Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager yeast or Fermentis SafLager W-34/70.
This beer will benefit from a period of lagering.
