I used the Wyeast 1007 German Ale Yeast, but it comes across more like a Helles like you said.

And would this come out similarly if the Wyeast 2565 Kolsch yeast is used? This looks like fun to do. Especially when I don't have the temperature control set-up to do lagers.

I don't know about the 2565 and how it would end up. I bought a smack pack of both and ended up using the 1007, I may brew this up and use the 2565 since I have it to see how it differs.

Brewed this a few weeks ago and split the batch. Fermented half with WLP029, and the other with WLP080. Decided to bottle them for the true German feel, but calculated my priming sugar based on 10 gallons and only actually had 8. It will probably wind up at about 3.5 volumes

On bottling the two tasted a lot different. WLP080 was much clearer, and also more bitter. The 029 was very malty and smooth. I'm very interested to see how they compare once they've brightened up.

Brewed 11 gal of this recipe Sunday night. Since I don't have the capability to lager, I used US05 one one bucket and S04 on the other. While not a lager, I am sure it'll taste great. Being an ale, I am planning to have it on tap by Oktoberfest! Thanks for sharing!

Last night, I kegged the US05 batch. OG was 1.048, FG was 1.006 making it 5.6% ABV. This was my first pilsner and though it's an ale, the hydro sample tasted amazing. While flat, it was clean and balanced.

What did you mash at to get it to finish at 1.006?

thanks Kevin

Kevin,

154 for 115 min (getting kids to bed took longer than anticipated!). I think between the long mash and the use of US05, it got me down that low. I haven't checked my other bucket, where I used S04 but I suspect that it would be have a higher FG.

I've got a spare pack of old 1007, was thinking of making this to use it up. How would this beer fare at 16deg in primary and no lager for a summer brew?

I'm planning on making this within the next few weeks. I've never really made a lager (i know this is psuedo-lager). Following completion of fermentation, I only have space to lager 1 keg at a time. Will it hurt the beer, or make it funky, if i cold condition for a week or two prior to drinking and let the other stay at room temperature in the keg? I would then cold condition the other prior to drinking. Any harm in leaving one at room temp until consumption?
