"Ever since the first alt bier hit my lips I've been hooked on this style! Germany has alot more to offer than just their lagers and this is a great example!" Ryan recommends a 90 minute boil for this style, so hold off on those hops until you are 30 minutes into boil. You may need to start with more water than you normally would to compensate for the additional boil-off. Ferment at 62-64 for 2 weeks in primary, and lager or 4-8 weeks at 40F if you can keep your hands off it for that long. Prost!
