Description
 
This is a style-accurate, traditional German Rauchbier (Smoked beer). It's generally similar to an Octoberfest/Marzen beer but uses a good dose of Beechwood smoked malt from Bamberg Germany. Smoked beers are a relatively small subset of the huge beer universe and it is quite devicive. Some people LOVE them and others HATE them. It's best to do a little research and taste some commercial examples before embarking on this quest. A common brand is Schlenkerla (look for the Marzen version) but keep in mind that this recipe is about half as smoky as theirs.

Equal doses of imported German malts; Smoked Rauch Malt, Munich and Vienna lay the foundation and Noble German hops cut through and keep it refreshing.

As a true lager beer, these are your fermentation options in order of preference:
Pitch 2 packs of Omega OYL-114, Omega OYL-107, or White Labs WLP820 (or make a 2 liter starter from one pack of any of those) and ferment at 50F.... or

Pitch 2 packs of Saflager W34/70 dry yeast and ferment at 50F.... or
Pitch 1 pack of Saflager W34/70 and ferment in the low to mid 60's (the sacrifice of this option is increased fruity esters and less lager like profile)

If you absolutely must ferment this at 70F or above, a pack of of Safale K-97 or Omega Lutra will work.

If you plan to bottle condition, be sure you have 4-5 ounces of priming sugar. You can purchase that as an accessory as well.
For emphasis: This kit does not include yeast, it must be selected from the accessories list on the right.
