Vienna Lager (Basic recipe)


Recipe Impression

A moderate-strength continental amber lager with a soft, smooth maltiness and a balanced, moderate bitterness, yet finishing relatively dry. The malt flavor is clean, bready-rich, and somewhat toasty, with an elegant impression derived from quality base malts and process, not specialty malts or adjuncts.

Принцип создания хорошего Венского лагера заключается в том, чтобы не переусердствовать с темным и сладким солодовым характером. Характер пива не должен быть слишком жаренным или карамельным. Необходимо сосредоточиться на умеренно поджаренном и солодовом характере, который исходит из таких сортов солода как Венский, Мюнхенский и Пильзнерский
