Nick,
I'm interested in your decoction versus infusion test. Keep us posted!

Yeah man I will. Decoction is lagering. Infusion is in Diacytl rest right now and will get transfered to secondary in the next week or so and start lagering as well. I'll probably lager them for a couple month and then keg them both and finally do a blind tasting with some "beer nerd" friends that have better palate's then myself. I'll definitely be updating my blog as this goes on, and I'll make sure to post the results here.

Cheers!

Nick

Think i might give this one a go with a double enhanced decoction.

Any result on the decoction versus infusion experiment?
How big of an issue do you guys think water profile is with regard to flavour?

I kegged them both this weekend, and the decoction definitely came out a darker color. There are a lot of hops in this recipe so it's tough to tell if the decoction came out more malty....that is undecided at this point. I'll be bottling it soon and will have some BJCP certified judges do a blind tasting on them and see what they say about them. It's a great hoppy pilsner though.... that much is for sure! Both versions decoction, and infusion came out really tasty!

mmmmm pilsner.
I just did a version of this (now at 15G) where I used magnum in smaller quantity to bitter at 60 minutes, and with the vigorous boil only did a 60 min boil. I used saaz in the last 15 for the saaz aroma and flavors without the cost of bittering entirely with saaz. We'll see how it comes out. I kegged last night, so it will lager at least 4 weeks.

Brewing this next week looks like a great recipe. I'm curious if anyone every tries to dry hop Saaz in a Bohemia Pils.

I've dry hopped a bohemian pils with saaz & didn't care for it much.

I'm gonna do that too, next time there's snow on the yard.

Regarding a dryhopped bo pils, i dunno, doesn't sound right. Maybe on a german pilsner, but bo pils is supposed to be softer and more malt forward. I've got 4 different bo pils batches in kegs right now! I get some nice saaz spiceyness in a couple of them, but that is in the swallow, not in the nose.
