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!

    Great customer service

    Posted by Casey E. on Mar 25th 2019

    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!
