Good substitute for Pilsner malt?
I hate not having a local HBS store. I was supposed to go to St Louis and stop by a HBS store on wednesday, but plans fell through. SO, I'm looking at the following substitution dilema.
What I'm brewing:
10 lbs Pilsner malt
2 lbs vienna malt
3 lbs belgian candi sugar
2 oz tettnang hops
What I have:
3 lbs Pilsner malt
3 lbs 6-row
20 lbs 2 row
10 lbs Maris Otter
14 lbs Wheat malt
4 lbs 10l Crystal
6 lbs light DME
2 lbs vienna
3 lbs Belgian candi sugar
2 oz chinhook hops
3 oz Fuggle
1 oz Saaz
3 oz Cluster
1 oz Willamette
Here's what I have in mind, I want to use the 3 lbs Pilsner malt, 3 lbs 6 row, and some of the 2 row to make 10 lbs of grain. Do you think that will jack up the flavor?
For the hops... would Willamette and Saaz be a good substitution for Tettnanger hops?
I'm using WY3787 Trappist yeast.
Use the 2 row, it will work fine.
Since you'll have the vienna in there, you won't notice the difference between Pilsner (1.5-1.9L) and 2-row(3-4L)
Allrightythen... 2-row it is. As far as the hops go... any suggestions?
Oh, and the good news is... I've got all the right ingredients to make my American Pilsner this weekend. No substitutions there.
