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 Dos Equis lager recipe is a classic.
This Dos Equis clone recipe 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 Dos Equis clone 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!
