The Original Pilsner

Recommended Posts

Can’t find a reference on here, has anyone done it before and if so comment? Kegged it today into a maturing keg after a 7 day fermentation. Will leave this one for a while (is 2 weeks “a while”🤔😂)

I did one a while back, it was nice without standing out but it would have been done with hop pouches. I guess I was doing this around the time of cold crashing for 4 days and leaving the hop oils in for 5 days. It just didn't have it for me but to be fair, I did all the things to it I'd never do now, so it may be worth trying again, dry hopped.

Dry hopped 20g Czech Saaz for just on 48hrs. (not a liquid hop pouch fan, but have 2 of each in the fridge in case I run out of pellets or forget to add prior to keg mode status).

Cracked this one yesterday after 7+ weeks maturing. I must say an excellent drop, bitter/sweet finish well supported by the Czech Saaz hops. From Rob’s comments I’d say the hop pellets made a difference to using the liquid hop sachets.

Man i cannot wait until the 1st of August to crack into my kegs. This looks like a good drop. I think some pilsners might be worth cracking into for the upcoming summer months. Might have to think ahead

Yeah, I'm not drinking until I get back home (hopefully Friday), so as soon as I get in the door, a few bottles in the freezer and by time I unpack, a nice selection of brews will have reached temp...and if they haven't...I'm still having one

At 8 weeks and absolutely delicious. Will be a great summer drink or a Port Hedland @Paul84anytime drink.

Will order one of these next order now I am coming down in stock. The crap thing is, if I get one each of my favs and a few others to try I'm probably hitting 15-20 prints in an order
