Just for the record, Pilsner U is intentionally brewed to have a bit of diacetyl in it. There are brewers out there that want it in their beers, and this is one of those examples.

Whether you want it or not is your call, of course, but it shouldn't be universally considered a bad thing and a considerable number of people accept it or even want it.

I think these types of pilsners are allowed to have small amounts of diacetyl, but pilsner U does not. At least as far as I would say. I haf recently gone through the BCJP course using pilsner u for that style and tasted none. In addition the audio of Gordon Strong judging it he mentioned that there was no diacetyl present. He did say that maybe they had cleaned it up over the years which suggests maybe it used to have some.

This thread suggests that the Pilsner U that you get closer to the brewery has a noticeable amount of diacetyl than what's available now in the US.

http://www.beeradvocate.com/communit...-in-us.167447/

Whether that's intentional or a side effect of something else going on, I don't know. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the result of a greater acceptance of it overseas than in the US, but it's certainly possible it just has to do with something else they're doing to ship it to the states.

At any rate, it's certainly OK if someone wants a bit of diacetyl in that version of pilsner, or not have it as the case may be.

Default Pilsner Urquell

Interesting thread. And I am certainly no expert. I just recently had done that with bjcp stuff and it reminded me of it.

i had not even had pilsner u before that. What a great beer that is. And they sell it in those boxed now which must help the light problems what with the clear bottles and all

Pilsner Urquell comes in lots of varieties, some as strong as yours, with varying degrees of diacetyl. The export version is cleaner and not as strong as the local beers.

Lagering in two 5 gallon batches...still. Decided to hit one with Nelson Sauvin dry hopping...figure another 2-3 weeks and I'll keg them up.
