Classic Vienna lager

BIAB - Lager recipes

Malt flavors come first with a delicate and complex toastiness. Hops give balance to the malt with just enough bitterness and slightly spicy. Clean lager character; no phenols or esters. Finish will be somewhat dry and crisp with both the malt and hop bitterness remaining noticeable into the aftertaste.
