Super Alt

Hi All,

has anyone brewed the NB recipe for Super Alt?
I did years and years ago and really liked it.
I’ve made Alts over the years, and just ok, but I remember this one being really good.

but I noticed NO reviews on it and it’s “out of stock” whatever that means?
for all grain, I just buy the ingredients.

so, I have some 1007 German Ale slurry (from my mocktoberfest), thinking about making this again.

thoughts?

thanks

It’s “out of stock” because they are no longer selling it as a kit. If you click additional info it will provide a link to the recipe so you can buy individual ingredients.

Thanks,

What I am really asking is…

Is this a good recipe?
Unpopular?
Why out of stock?

Just wondering

Maybe not a popular seller? Maybe they decided to go a different route. Hard to tell.

What does matter is that YOU liked it so why the reservation?

Indeed dont matter what others think or do. As long you like it. Maybe you can find the recipy on a recipy creator. And buy the ingedients. Seperate. Did see the recipy. On brewtoad

I also did it years ago and liked it a lot. Since then, I’ve taken that recipe, tweaked it considerably, and get the ingredients from my LHBS. And yes, I do use the 1007, and love it!

Thanks

How did you tweak it?

I just tried to upload the recipe from Brewtoad to NB forum, but I’m unable. The latest iteration of the recipe is on there as ‘Ben’s Doublealt’ under ‘JimRMaine’. I have been shooting to replicate Long Trail Brewing’s ‘Doublebag’, which is a 7.2%,39 IBU, wonderful example.
Comparing my recipe to the NB one, they have a little more than 12.5 lb grain, mine has a little less than 11.5 lb, plus 3 lb. munich LME. OG= 1.076. My IBU=40, a little higher than NB, but in accordance with the increased OG. Hop varieties are about the same (Perle instead of Tradition this year because that’s what I have). Their base grains are all munich, mine is 53% munich and 47% pilsner. They have about 4% caramel malt, I use about 8%.
I do a 2 step decoction- 145* and 155*, which is my habit for all my german ales and lagers.
