Maybe a Munich Helles this weekend…

Believe it or not, this is the very first time Shepody Brewery is making a lager beer.

Here is the BJCP style guideline for this particular beer style.

I always find it a good idea to listen to The Brewing Network‘s description of a new style before I brew it. So here’s is Jamil’s one hour chat about Munich Helles. It is very informative and put to rest my concenrs about only doing a simple infusion mash and about fermentation temperatures.
