Default Pilsener & cherry

Hi ,

0.5 oz Cascada hops last 5 min

Add cherry fruit to secondary

Brew 23 Litres

Your comments and suggestion please

Thanks in advance

A cherry pilsener sounds extremely bizarre to me! Wouldn't you rather add it to an ale? I hate fruit beers but I would've thought cherries would lend their flavours to an ale rather than a lager.

Maybe you could tell us how much fruit you're adding and what kind of cherries?

Hi Mysterio,

Thanks for your comment, this combination is not good just my wild thinking and i'm a beginner for brewing beer. I will take out the fruit and just brew the pilsener kit.
Thanks

Go ahead and try it. You may come up with something that you really like.
I've seen a recipe for a peach pilsner and I'm thinking that a light addition of lemon might work.

Or you could just brew the pilsner and add a drop or three of cherry extract to one glass so if it sucks you won't have ruined a full batch.

I aggree

I'm not very fond of brewing a pilsner (or any beer for that matter) with fruit, but I may mix the beer with lemon soda. This should also work with cherry soda.
