Acid malt doesn't really make it an American pils but have you experimented with water chemistry yet? If you mash pH is already low it may be detrimental.
And if you're looking for a German pils flavor you're not going to get it using UK pale malt. German pils malt adds a crisp character while UK pale adds bready character.
And what's the reasoning behind the camden tablet?
Haven't tested water but it is a hard water
I meant to say whirl floc tablet as a fining agent
The beer will be tasty, I'm sure, but to echo what Reno_eNVy said you need to use German ingredients if you want the beer to taste like a German beer. German pils malt and German noble hops are the best choices IMO. :mug:
I get in the LHBS family outside so scrambling scooping malt weighing and milling
I even took a list
I think I ended up with Paul US 2 row do we 'll see I sure I made beer
Yes I plan studying water profiles more now that I have temperatur
control and yeast starters down
Thanks to everyone for your input
