If you like the commercial beer in the left column then you will like the recipe. Of course it won’t be exactly the same, but it will be close enough. It will be a good place to start experimenting from. For the hops you can use either the tea bag finishing hops, or loose pellets.

The yeast supplied with most beer kits is an ale yeast. For the lager beers try using a lager yeast in winter and ferment it cold, the beer will come up much better.
