Description Additional Information
 
A Classic Rauchbier is a smoked lager beer with a deep rooted history stemming from Bamburg, Germany. We use authentic German Beechwood smoked malt (Rauchmalz) as 97% of our grains for this incredibly smoke-forward brew! Smoke and bacon will consume your senses when you take your first whiff of this dark amber brew. The taste profile is an incredibly clean, malt forward beer that has strong but very palatable smokey flavors and notes of slight malty sweetness that your mouth a little dry and thirsty for more! Hops flavor and aroma is not present in this beer which keeps it very true to style. Our Classic Rauchbier is a great way to experience old world German tradition right in the comfort of your own home! If you like Schlenkerla you'll love this brew!

Note: This kit uses Lager Yeast which needs to ferment at ~50F. Please see our love2learn article about proper lagering techniques.

Experimental Brewing Ideas

Smokey and Sweet

Rauchbiers have a huge smoke flavor that create a dry beer - sweeten it up by adding 2 lbs. of Frozen Sweet Cherries to the secondary during lagering. The cherry flavor will create an interesting compliment of sweet fruit and smoke that makes for a very pleasurable beer.

Avoid Over Doing It

Smoked Beers like Rauchbier contain enough smokey aromatics to compliment any meal, but be wary about pairing this beer with additional smoked foods as it can be overwhelming. Go for grilled chicken, a burger, or even a light fish dish.
