Lager / Pilsner All-Grain Beer Recipe Kits

<p>Lagers use “bottom-fermenting” yeasts, which ferment at the bottom of a fermentation container and are typically brewed at cooler temperatures than ales. Lager yeast strains don’t typically feature the fruity aromas and other flavors that the top-fermenting yeast in ales do. As a result, lagers tend to have a more crisp and cleaner flavor than their ale counterparts.</p>

<p>The Pilsner style hails from Bohemia (now part of the Czech Republic) in the 1840s. They have a rich, complex malt profile that's complimented by the use of Czech Saaz hops (typically), which will impart a bit of a floral flavor. They are a lighter beer that range in color from a pale gold, to dark gold and have a medium body and mouthfeel and are known for having great head retention.</p>
