Pete's Marzen

This recipe turned out fantastic! I kegged it in a soda can- ister and force carbonated (2 days at 15 psi/38 degrees in the fridge). This beer has a very authentic german taste and is a beautiful reddish amber in color. Very similar to Stoudt's Fest beer for anyone living in the PA area that has sampled that wonderful beer.

Mashed the grains using a single infusion at 155 degrees F in a picnic cooler. Sparged with 170 degree water into the brewpot. Brought to boil, removed from heat then added the malt extract. Brought to boil again, skimming the creamy froth as it formed (it helps eliminate boil-overs), then added 1 oz. Tettnanger hop pellets. At 30 minutes added 1 oz Hallertau, then added the final oz of Haller at final 3 min. Cooled and pitched yeast.
