Brewed this today and way overshot the OG. My LHBS must have adjusted their mill because I ended up with 1.053 OG.

I'm going to brew this again and sub some Vienna for the pale malt. Working up the recipe on Beersmith right now.

This is a very lengthy fermentation. It’s been in the primary now for 14 days, and there is still activity in the airlock. I hope to get it in the secondary in the next few days and bottle next weekend. I sure it hope it conditions in time for Turkey Day.

I've made something similar to this recipe, I use Pilsner malt as my primary base malt for everything I brew. It was a great beer as well!

Do you do a longer boil with pills malt also to help with DMS? I've been doing the 90 with all my lighter styles and it does seem to make a difference....

I get asked that question a lot with pilsner malt. I do not boil longer than 60 mins unless its Oktoberfest 90 mins). I strongly recommend to boil with the lid off the kettle for DMS to not be present. I've used Belgian pilsner and German pilsner with no DMS issues. I hope this helps you! I also added some wheat for incredible head retention in my recipe. Although I had a different hop schedule and used Wyeast 1056 and fermented at 58-60*f. It had a wonderful slight crisp citrus flavor that complemented the the slight dryness of the beer.

Sure can.... You can use whatever hops you want for this brew since it's only a bittering addition.. My last batch I used like 9 grams of 17%AA summit for 5 gal.. Works like a charm
