    Cheat Code Märzen

    Cheat Code Märzen

    Märzen (Oktoberfest) – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.052 – FG 1.010– ABV 5.3% - IBU 17 – SRM 11

    We’ve been working on this one for a while. The idea was to create an authentic Oktoberfest style Märzen, but in an accessible fashion. Traditional Märzen beers are fermented like a lager at a consistent 10°C, and then aged (lagered) at 0°C for months before being consumed. This process requires equipment, storage space, and patience (:p) that not all of our fellow homebrewers possess. The goal was to make an authentic tasting Märzen recipe that can be brewed at room temperature and be enjoyed in a shorter time. And, we ah, nailed it – this one is a winner.

    This recipe is a combination of high-quality German (and 1 Belgian) malts, along with authentic Hallertau hops, and the secret ingredient – KRISPY from Escarpment Labs. To get it to the ideal final gravity of 1.005, we added ¼ teaspoon (1 gram) of Escarpment Labs new yeast nutrient: Yeast Lightning.
