I'm not sure I understand correctly. What is your typical brew process?

Default pilsner


thanks for getting back to me quickly.
so my problem is. i want to use a 1000 ltr plastic icb tank to ferment the brew.
using your recipe i will need aprox 150+ kg of plisner malt.
i want to mash this in a 250 ltr metel barrel in one go.
if i do and then cool to correct temp and prepare my other 750 ltr to the same temp in the plastic icb with an aquarium heater can i simply add the mash and mix to ferment and expect a good finished product.
my problem being i dont have a 1000ltr metal tun.
i hope that explains it as your blog inspired me.
ive only brewed wine before but this is for a big halloween party.

any help would be great T.

OK, be patient with me as I try to understand your intent here. I'm gathering English is not your primary language? If not, that's OK, we'll do our best to understand each other here.

That sounds about right according to my calculations. For a 200 gallon batch at about 77% efficiency, I come up with:

318 lbs Pilsner malt
5 lbs Melanoidin
5 lbs Acidulated malt

750L of what? Water? Also, what is "ICB?"

Are you talking about adding water to your wort to make a larger pre-boil volume?

I'm not sure this recipe at that scale would be the best way to try your first beer. Do you have any way to cool the fermenting wort to ferment at lager temperature? It might be a good idea to try a simple ale first with that setup before trying a more difficult lager like my Pilsner recipe. Not trying to discourage you, but there may be some difficulties with attempting a recipe like mine on your first try. A 1000L vessel could ferment 200 gallons easily, which is what I figured for your batch size. That is HUGE. That would be one very large party to drink 200 gallons of beer.

Let me know if I'm understanding you correctly and I'll try to help.

Brewed this again yesterday, but skipped the melanoidin malt altogether. Got a bit lighter color this time. We'll see if the final outcome is satisfactory. I've got this new World Select German Pils from Cargill that I'm giving a shot. Might as well see how it behaves on its own before teaming it with a small percentage of melanoidin.

Will post results if anyone is interested. (It'll be a while of course)

I pulled a sample of this latest brew during diacetyl rest and it's already quite pleasant. The color is definitely lighter and there's still good grainy malt profile without the melanoidin. We'll see how it turns out after lagering, but it's promising so far.

I pulled another sample of this brew, from the lagering keg this time. This is the best non-German made Pils I've ever had. Definitely going to leave out the melanoidin malt from now on. I also changed the water profile, mash pH, and sparge water acidity a bit - which I'm sure contributes to the better tasting Pilsner.

More updates when this beer is finally on tap...
