Another no messing quality recipe , usually the best beers I've had have simple recipes . A little heavy on the bitterness for my liking but great hops , very low AA% at the moment ain't they . I also find using a higher AA% hop like perle for the bitterness gives a less harsh hop bitterness . :D

I was thinking of maybe trying what Aleman suggested and simmer it for maybe two and a half to three hours. Not sure what to do with the hop additions though if i was to go that way!

Another successful brewday!
Got this going on Sunday . Everything went to plan hit my target gravity and volume. The step mash was pretty easy as well. It's chugging along nicely in the fridge @9oc just now. So I'll leave this alone for a couple of weeks and hopefully with the large starter it'll be finished.

Cheers

Well this finished @1.010.
I'll transfer to a clean bucket and lager for a few weeks. Then it'll need time to bottle condition, so still a while before it's ready to drink.

I'd be inclined to keep them the same if you choose to do this, still gonna be plenty of utilisation when simmering.

Step mashing is pretty simple if you've got the ability to do them. I brew BIAB on the gas hob, but it was only when i got a new hob with one of those big wok burners that i could get up to the next temp quickly enough. Temp control is essential when brewing lagers, i normally ferment @ 9oc. Pitching enough yeast is also essential. Once fermented out i transfer to a clean bucket and lager it at about 1oc for around 4 weeks ( this is just my method ). Once bottled i just follow the same process as i use with Ale, two weeks warm then somewhere cooler until they are ready to drink. I've never had to add any more yeast at bottling, there's still plenty left in the brew to carbonate the bottles.
Hope this helps.

Hey Brycey,
How did this one turn out in the end? I'm looking to do a pilsner of some description, but one with a clear hop taste, so this sounds just the job.

Fermenting:


Conditioning:

Drinking: The Above
Up Next: Not sure yet, one of many

This is one of two recipes that i now brew when doing a pilsner. It's a really simple beer to make and as long as you pitch enough yeast and ferment at around 9oc to 12oc you can't really go wrong.

It's really difficult to beat a simple Pilsner Malt and 100% Saaz recipe
