This beer is highly carbonated so if I'm bottling I would use about 3/4 cup sugar or equivalent. In the keg push it up to between 2.5 and 3.5.

Its not the law though, its Beer Tao. Carbonate at whatever level you like. It will still be awesome.

Ok, so I decided to brew tonight but made some adjustments to my own personal curiosity, I went with 14 lbs. Pilsner malt. 2 lbs homemade inverted sugar and .5 lb Munich malt. I am going to use wyeast 3522 and underpitch a bit to stress the yeast. Thanks again for the jump off point! I will post back in a few months if anyone wants to know.

Gordon,
So I'm planning on doing this in two days. I'm making my starter tonight. So which mash temp/time and boil time did you find worked best and when do you recommend adding the sugar? I'm going with your original recipe......16 lb Pilsner, etc. and regular cane sugar. Thanks in advance.

This should have a low FG and part of that comes from mashing low and long. I've settled into a 146F mash for roughly 1.5 hours. I boil until I reach 6 gallons which is usually 1.5 hours. Sugar is added into primary just as the head begins to drop. This is a great recipe, hope it turns out well for you.

Then that's saying something for the recipe and your skill as a brewer. Glad it came out well. Prost!

Gordon,
Another question if you don't mind. Do recommend lagering at 32F after 2 weeks (as in Houblon's recipe) or should I just let it sit at room temp for secondary? Thanks.
