German Lager, March 19 2008

German Lager - Brewed March 19th, 2008
Everytime the kegerator runs low, I try to utilize the space for making lagers. Even though I have gone through BJCP and judge beer occasionally, I tend to brew whatever I feel like. I rarely focus on a specific style and brew accordingly. My recipes are mostly simple, utilizing only a few select ingredients. I also try to incorporate my homegrown hops whenever possible. This brew uses equal portions of pilsner, vienna, and munich malts combined with my homegrown magnum hops and saaz.
