Default Budvar Recipe Question

Homebrewer_99 posted this recipe awhile back and I have some questions about it:

Budweiser
Budvar
True Budweis lager. Spritzy aroma of hops and gentle fruit.
Quenching, beautifully balanced in the mouth, bitter-sweet
Finish with light vanilla notes.

OG: 1048 / 11.9 Plato

Lager malt (Pilsen):
25 liters – 5,300 gm / 23 liters – 4,900 gm / 5 UK gals – 10.65 lb / 5 US gals – 8.85 lb (approx 5.4 lb DME)

Start of Boil: Saaz hops
25 liters – 50 gm / 23 liters – 45gm / 5 UK gals – 1.5 oz / 5 US gals – .3 oz

Last 15 mins of Boil add Irish Moss
25 liters – 10 gm / 23 liters – 10 gm / 5 UK gals – .35 oz / 5 US gals – .3 oz

Brewing Method: Temperature-stepped infusion or double concoction mash. Bottom working lager yeast.

Mash Schedule:
50C – 20 mins (122F)
60C – 40 mins (140F)
70C – 40 mins (158F)

Boil Time: 90 mins

Racking Gravity: 1011 / 2.7 Plato

Alcohol Content: 5.0% ABV / 4.0% ABW

Bitterness: 20 EBU

Color: 4 EBU

Lager for 3 months.

How come the top says, "Spritzy aroma of hops and gentle fruit." when the only hops added are for bittering? How can it say aroma of hops when there are no aroma hops?

Also, will 5.4 lbs of DME actually end up with 5% alcohol. I would think more like 4%...

Anyone do this recipe?

Thanks!

5.4# of DME will result in about 1.050. If your yeast attenuates this down to 1.010 (guessing lower) your ABV will be 5.26-ish%.

I'll let HB99 defend himself on the "aroma's."

Trust HB99 on this recipe. It looks delicious!

Actually, I believe it was a recipe from a book he had...I'll try this beer at some point.

I recognise this from a book called "Brew Classic European Beers at Home" by Wheeler & Protz.

The recipe looks flawless to me... you can still get aroma from a recipe with only bittering hops.

The only thing you'll have to look out for is mash PH if doing an all-grain, seeing as it's only base grain.

I plan on using DME. Though, I'm curious, how come the hop lines end with "- .3 oz?"

Also, if the boil time is 90 min, should I put the hops in starting at 90 min or 60 min? Thanks

Its a misprint on the recipe you posted. The Saaz hop addition for 5US gallons should be 1.3oz.

According to the book, the hops should be added at 90 minutes.

umm... I can't seem to find pilsen DME anywhere. The LHBSs don't seem to carry anything like it... the closest I came to this was a German Pilsner LME from morebeer Here. Will this do?

You are all right. I did mis-type it. Sorry.

I just checked the book. The hops are 1.3 oz. added at boil then you boil for 90 mins and the .3 oz is Irish Moss.

I didn't translate this, but I think the originator meant to translate "wurzig" which is "spicy" or "aromatic", but not "spritzy". "Sprudeln" (bubble) doesn't work here either.
