Munich Helles


Here's a nice Munich Helles lager recipe I've been using for the last year or so - makes a very drinkable beer. It's based on a recipe in Miller's


  • 7# two-row lager malt
  • 1# vienna malt
  • 1# carapils
  • ~6-8 HBU Tettnang, 1 addition at 45 minutes
  • Wyeast 2308 Munich Lager, from 1/2 gallon starter

Mash schedule: 30 minutes @ 122F, 30 minutes @ 140F, 30-60 minutes @ 155F, 10 minutes @ 165F, sparge 5 gallons @ 168F.

Chill to 48F and pitch yeast. Ferment 2 weeks @ 48F, rack to secondary and let temperature rise to mid 50's for diacetyl rest for 2-3 days. Then back to 32F for lagering 4-6 weeks.
