I'll admit I brew almost exclusively from BCS these days. My brewing software is on a computer I'm not in front of very often, and I particularly don't like using it. As such I don't do alot of...

It should have taken a good week, but that is at pilsner/lager fermentation temperatures 50-55F. You were a good 20F above that optimum.

I'm afraid this will not be much like a Pilsner based on...
