German Pilsner (Pils)


This is a light little on the hoppy side pilsner, goes down smooth and has a great hop at the end.
I list honey, this is where you can get creative, I use clove honey most of the time but I have used many different flavor honey and each give this beer a unique flavor.

I brewed this in a 10 gal batch yesterday. Double the ingredients to scale the batch. Also changed the hops to Williamette (60min) & Tettnang (15min), used dry Safeale US-05 yeast. OG was 1.050, hydrometer sample tasted amazing! Can't wait to taste this when finished! I plan to keg 5gals & bottle the rest. Will update when completed 🍻 cheers!
