I'll take your word for it being a good beer, but IMO it's not really a Classic American Pilsner. A real CAP would use six row for the base malt and Cluster hops for bittering along with some imported noble hops for the late additions. I don't know much about sauer malt, but doubt it was a traditional ingredient. Don't know why you would need the melanoidin malt as it shouldn't be particularly heavy in body. The American hops are a poor choice for an American lager IMO.

Interesting recipe though and glad you are enjoying it. That's really what counts.

Catt the Brewpastor carries a lot of weight here, Additionally the recipe is Neo-Classical meaning new.

I wondered what you were using for the "base" of your chile beer. That really looks good.

But it is listed as a CAP and 6-row should be used in a CAP. Also if it's Neo, it isn't really a CAP

So how much tartness will you get from the sauer malt at that proportion? I've never used the stuff. I'm askared:o

Ok, I gotta step up and give cat some props. He had a pretty good showing at a couple of shows, especially with a CAP. Check out Table 1, Mr. Z from Cincy. That was one of a couple of top 3 placements that he had last weekend.

No offense Reverend - I love your stuff !

saved in the 'things to brew' folder. The first HB I ever had was a habanero beer.

Everything looks awesome. I'm looking for an interesting out-of-the-box beer for the summer.

Just one question:

What are these "grams" you speak of? Some strange new language here in the new world. :D
