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!

Just wanted to give you guys a shout out for awesome customer service! Emailed you guys with a question about a product and had a solution within 15 minutes. I was told there would be a short delay in shipping due to an item being out of stock, but my whole order ended up going out the very next day. I think it was Joe who helped me. Excited to get my stuff and thanks again!
Nice and easy with the extract kit. Waiting for the lagering period to enjoy this recipe clone.
