American Lager Complete Kit
A refreshing American Lager for those who appreciate one of the world’s most popular beer styles.
Our American Lager is straw-coloured in appearance with a low bitterness. It is crisp, dry and thirst-stopping. The lager yeast employed will give some slightly fruity notes to add a pinch of character. The goal is a light-tasting beer with low levels of malt, hop and yeast character in perfect balance.
The yeast under the lid is an 11g pack of Fermentis S-23 lager yeast.
Original Gravity of 1.045 (11.25°P), fermented to a Final Gravity of about 1.009 (2.3°P), resulting in 4.8% alcohol by volume, 13 Bitterness Units and 3 SRM/6 EBC colour.
Ferment at 15°C/59°F for 3 days and then increase to 18°C/64°F for a diacetyl rest to complete fermentation after another 3 days. Cooling can be put on at Day 6 when the SG should be about 1.009.
