This beloved Pilsner is enjoyed as a standard in bars all over the world. Coming in at a low, refreshing 4.6% ABV, this is a great lager to make in the Spring and enjoy in the Summer. Or brew it year round to have as a beer that any guest will enjoy! Enjoyable by the pint at home, on the beach, at the park, or even "dressed" with lime and salt, this recipe is a classic.
This beer is an intermediate/advanced style due to requiring strict temperature control in the low 50s during fermentation & a lagering period in a refrigerator. A diacetyl rest after primary fermentation is recommended, as well as racking to secondary for the lagering period.
In lieu of making this recipe as a traditional lager, a clean well attenuating American ale yeast can be used at ale temperatures.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
