Reader Tip: New Limited Edition Lederhosen Hoptoberfest + GC Promo Ending

Homebrew Finds - Wed, 10/01/2014 - 18:20

Thanks to HBF Reader Brandt for this tip!

Northern Brewer has announced a new limited edition kit Lederhosen Limited Edition Hoptoberfest.

Description: Created in the spirit of the annual festival in Munich, this hybrid beer is designed to be reminiscent of a traditional Marzen lager but fermented as an ale. The Kolsch yeast will retain a bit of lager character, especially if the fermentation temperature is kept on the low side – 60 to 65F is perfect. The use of Sterling hops provides a smooth bitterness, and just a hint of spicy hop flavor to mingle with this malt forward beer. This is a rapidly maturing beer, so you can enjoy this one a few weeks after brewing, and then ride out the autumn season sipping in style.

Bundles With: Gift Card Promo (Ends Tonight 10-1) and $7.99 Flat Rate Shipping
