Revenge of the Lauter tun Alt

Source: Jon Bovard
Recipe added: 02/11/98

Excellent maltiness with subdues bitterness. Spalt comes through in the flavour. Perhaps an extra 500g of munich and 500g less Lager malt. If possible supplement an amount of darker munich 25EBC (.5-1kg) for the paler variety. Decoction mash is important to bring out the flavour of the munich malts in this German style beer.
