Recipe added: 05/05/01

My first attempt at this style and absolutely not my last!! The fruity complexity of this beer is hard to describe. Very flavorful at cellar temperature. After ten years of homebrewing I can't think of another brew that was better than this one. I'm not German but I'm thinking of converting.


Recipe type: All Grain
Batch Size: 5 gallons
Starting Gravity: 1.040
Finishing Gravity: 1.010

Mash in at 122 degrees and hold for 30 minutes. Raise to 158 for 60-90 minutes until conversion. Mash out and sparge. Add 1 oz Tettnang for 60 min., and 1 oz for 20 min. Boil 90 min. in all.
