May the Schwarzbier With You

Special thanks to Brulosophy's Marshall Shott for the awesome recipe and name. This beer is a damned good simple, and inexpensive beer to brew. Very clean, and surprisingly crisp. I think the low fermentation temperatures were key to this. I wish there was more head retention, and it may have to do with carbonation levels at this point (they're still a bit low) but I'm wondering what I can do to up the head retention without adding wheat.

Stay silly and may the schwarzbier with you,

Matti

    Never used it! How does it work, scientifically speaking?

Adds dexitrines, proteins and polysaccharides that help with head retention.

    Great! I added some to my latest: an Irish Red. I’ll post the results soon!
