The sixteenth recipe in our NYC Brewery Series comes from Circa Brewing Co. A relatively recent addition to Brooklyn’s brewery scene, Circa Brewing Co is a 6,000 sq foot, fully functioning brewery and pizza restaurant, hidden in plain sight on Lawrence Street.
Circa has offered up Doppelsticke, a double altbier. Rich and malty, with a warming kick of alcohol - think of it as a German take on a barleywine. This recipe is a perfect candidate for aging and will only get better with time.

*This recipe has an OG (Original Gravity) above 1.060. We recommend making a starter or purchasing more than one pack of yeast to ensure a healthy fermentation.
Please note that kits do not include yeast. You can select both liquid or dry yeast from the dropdown menu. Dry yeast may be a better choice for summer months if you are shipping long distances.
