Default Extract - Saphir Pils

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: WLP800
Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.057
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: 45
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 Days @ 54f
Additional Fermentation: 48 hrs. @ 62f for diacytil rest near end of primary fermentation
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 Days @ 54f
Tasting Notes: Dry and refreshing. Great summer brew.

2 lbs. XL-DME (60 min)
3 lbs. XL-DME (10 min)
1.5 lbs. Clover honey

8 oz. Crystal 20L
4 oz. CaraPils

1 oz. Perle (60 min)
1.5 oz. Saphir (20 min)
.5 oz. Saphir (dry hop-1 week secondary)

WLP800- White Labs Pilsner Lager

Steep grains for 30 min. @ 155f, then start boil and add extract and hops at appropriate times. A full boil is highly recommended. I add honey toward the end of the boil although it is intended mainly to add dryness and can be added anytime. This beer ended up being very crisp, dry and refreshing, with herbal and citrus notes from German Saphir hops. It pours a crystal clear gold with a nice, thick head that leaves enough lacing to count the amount of drinks it took to finish, which is usually very few. I recently entered this in the local county fair and managed to come away with a blue ribbon.

I discovered them from Northern Brewer. I had no Idea what to expect when I bought them but they turned out to be perfect for this type of beer.

I just tossed some Saphir in a pilsner hybrid that's in the primary right now. It sounded like a tasty hop so I'm looking forward to it. I am generally an ale brewer in the realm of high hop brews, so a lager or pilz is purely experimental territory for me. The Saphir in this current beer is balancing a touch of Green Bullet for bittering. Thanks for your recipe - I'll probably use a version for the next one. It's getting cold here so I can ferment cold without a fridge now, and I wanted to use honey in a pilz at some point.
