Ingredient Kit – Vienna Lager – All Grain – 22L of delicious Lager
R300.00 incl. VAT
In the 1830s, when England started to kiln malts in a new fashion, Anton Dreher and Gabriel Sedlmayr II had taken this idea/technology from the English and had applied it to their own grains/malts. Anto Dreher created a malt with a little more caramelised flavour and called the malt Vienna Malt which he combined with Lager yeast to introduce the first Vienna Lager to the world in 1841.
Whilst Dreher was busy with his experiments, at the same time Sedlmayr experimented himself and created the very popular Marzen style beer. These two beers are very similar with Marzen being higher in alcohol, less hoppy flavour, and a sweeter taste.
After world war 1 Vienna Lager seemed to have faded from everyone’s memory in Europe but Mexico kept it alive, although changing the style a bit.
Our recipe is based on the European and traditional styles of the beer and malts used to create a beer with aromas of bread and toastiness with low hop aromas and bitterness.

Irish Red Ale
Irish Red Ale originated in Kilkenny, Ireland. By adding roasted barley to the grist, is what separates the Irish Red Ale from your regular English Pale Ale. A highly drinkable beer with a slightly toasty flavour and a smooth mouthfeel, this is a beer that can pair well with several different cuisines, ranging from spicy curry dishes to caramel and nut-inspired desserts.
Traditional Irish Pale Ales include:
- Moling’s Irish Red
- Kilkenny Irish Beer
- Beamish Red Ale
- Caffrey’s Irish Ale
The Roast Barley should only be added to the mash before sparging to achieve optimum colour.
Its most notable characteristics are the banana and cloves tastes that you get from a Weissbier. This beer has a very light hop addition and therefore this beer is crisp and refreshing but with a hazy colour due to the protein contents. The proteins also create a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel for this full-bodied beer. If you still have any doubts about this beer, it must be said that this beer is a beer that pairs well with almost any type of cuisine. You can enjoy this beer with light meals, complex tastes, and even extremely spicy foods.

Belgian Wit Bier
It is believed that Belgian Witbier is a recipe that comes from the monks, as early as the 15th century. Called a Witbier due to the hazy colour of the beer, and a creamy mouthfeel. Additions of bitter orange peel and coriander seeds are also synonymous when it comes to your traditional Witbier, where spices and fruits were used traditionally instead of hops. Refreshing, spicy, with a fruit finish, and a dense white head, this is a beer that is enjoyed whether the weather makes you sweat or shake.
