I've posted recipe below:
Batch Size: 3 gal
7 lbs pilsner malt
0.3 lbs Cara-Pils
41.2 IBU Pacific Gem at 60 min
19.1 IBU Nelson Sauvin at 20 min
2.7 IBU Nelson Sauvin at 2 min
Using S-23 dry lager yeast because I was too lazy to make a starter and this is really just a test batch. Figured some one here might be interested in a recipe like this. I will definitely post results!
PS: wow, I can smell the Sauvin hops from the kitchen and it really is incredible!
I'm going to give this recipe a go and I was wondering if you could give some more details if you remember them.
What temp did you mash at?
How long did you mash for?
Did you do a 90 minute boil with so much Pilsner Malt?
Any more info you could share would be much appreciated.
