BBAGL – Andechs German Lager (AGL) *BETA*

Availability: March through June, 2023

Source: A unique lager strain from a 500 year old Bavarian monastery

Available for the first time from Bootleg Biology!

The cold-fermenting strain slowly conquering American craft lagers. AGL is renowned for its ease to harvest, low sulfur production, clarity and authentic taste.

AGL brightens up predictable marzen, helles or pils recipes with a rich and refined flavor profile that feels new yet comfortably authentic.

Ferment at traditional lager ferm temperatures 50F-55F (10C-13C) for 2-6 weeks with a diacetyl rest before crashing or additional lagering.

Do not rush this culture. Those who respect AGL’s desire to make lovely beer at its own pace will have their patience rewarded.

Ideal for Cold IPAs.

    This made a super tasty beer, but boy was it slow to ferment. At best I got about 2 points a day fermenting in the low 50’s. Definitely give it a shot, but be patient!
