Light LME vs. "Pilsner" LME
On the morebeer.com website they have the following 2 kinds of LME:
German Pils Extract - "this light blond extract is 100% made from Durst brand German Pilsner malt."What is the difference between these 2 LMEs? Why would they use the ultralight in a pilsner recipe if the pils LME is supposedly meant for that?
I want to brew a Pilsner and am wondering whether to just use the LME I got from my LHBS or to order some of this special "pils" LME.
Pilsner extract is made from Pilsner malt, while extralight extract I suspect is made from regular 2-row. There's a difference in the character of the two, but if I was going to brew a Pils and had extra light extract on hand I'd probably just go with it. If you really want to be technically correct to style, order the Pilsner extract.
