Beer Style: Bohemian Pilsener (2B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Bohemian Pilsener


The yeast I used produced a very clean, clear beer and I'd recommend it highly. It you haven't gotten into liquid yeast cultures yet, do it for this batch. The difference is tremendous. Also I feel the key to success here are: The lightest extract you can find. Fresh hops or pellets packed in Nitrogen (only Saaz will do). Liquid yeast fermented at a steady low temp.


  • 4 pound can, Alexander's Pale malt extract syrup
  • 2-1/3 pounds, light dry malt extract
  • 15 AAU's, Saaz hops
  • Wyeast 2007 Bohemian Pilsner yeast
