This is my go-to pilsner recipe. I don't sweat the details except the temps. NYC water,
whichever versions of the grain bill the LHBS has, Bohemian Pilsner yeast. I start the
fermentation at 45 and br...

put the new one together today, just swapped the wire and it seems to be working fine. Don't

was 1.054. I decided it was time for the D-rest so I turned the temp up to 60. Fermentation
