one more nitpicking question:

your saying that you get 22 IBU from the FWH, which is what i would expect from a 90 min calculation, but I thought FWH was supposed to calculated as a 20 min addition?

You know it's funny you ask because I spent like 30 minutes during the mash trying to figure out how to account for the FWH, and I still don't feel like I totally understand it...but I will say the bitterness came out just about perfect (IMO).

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but from my admittedly limited understanding, I thought FWH gave the same # of actual IBUs as a standard bittering addition. It's just the perceived bitterness that is different.

And I think the 20 min reference is referring to the effect it has on taste/aroma, but again I am not even close to an expert on FWH. This was actually the first recipe I designed using it.

"the big FWH question" may never be answered....

still, if you say the bitterness tastes right, who cares about IBUs!

Gonna brew this today as I have plenty of Pils drinkers in the neighborhood. I had a tough time with Notti Dry yeast last time I used it, as in really slow to get going.

I'm curious as to how much like a pilsner this really ended up being, given that you used an standard ale yeast? I've never done something like that before, but i would expect the character of the beer to VERY different than a pilsner.

Not sure why.

The grain bill and hops are pretty standard pilsner and Notty is very clean/neutral for an ale yeast...especially at the bottom of its fermentation range. I'm going to brew a split batch (1/2 German lager, 1/2 Notty) sometime soon to compare side by side, but I can't imagine it being THAT distinguishable. Notty is capable of coming out really really clean IME.

Yeah the packet I used for this last batch was guilty of this as well. Took almost 36 hours before activity was visible. Fortunately the beer turned out just fine in the end.

Just racked to 2ndary after 2 weeks @ 60F and the dry Notti worked out great. Had a taster and OMG this beer taste like a crispy pils with the Saaz hops. Can't wait to keg!
