Munich Helles (Basic recipe)


Impresja Receptury

A gold-colored German lager with a smooth, malty flavor and a soft, dry finish. Subtle spicy, floral, or herbal hops and restrained bitterness help keep the balance malty but not sweet, which helps make this beer a refreshing, everyday drink.

Munich Helles should by Malty but not Sweet.

The goal is to follow the style guidance - focus on Continental Pilsner Malt, noble German Aroma  hops, e.g., Hallertau family, German-style lager yeasts, and clean and cold fermentation process. Without these key elements you will not get the Munich-like lager beer.

Do not use Caramel malt since it is not a part of this style.
