This was highly recommended by my local beer store but I was disappointed. It was thin and fizzy.

It's a pilsner, if it's not thin and fizzy it's not according to style. Certainly one of my favorite summer beers. GOod hop nose to it.

Well I love it. As soon as my temp controller gets here I'll be taking a shot at it using the new Mangrove Bohemian Lager, 3% Melanoid instead of decoction and like hops.

i'm a bit confused.

so, a sacc rest at 149 for 60. What does "recirc thru 155 degree water" mean? are you bringing the mash up to 155? if so, for how long?

sacc rest at 149 for 60 seems like it would make a beer finish lower than 1.013. Target seems strange because website says it's 5.3%. Unless they are watering post-ferment.

buy 5 gallons of prima pils, put in your kettle, boil for 1 minute, cool down, put in storage vessel and carbonate.


On the serious side, this recipe has a lot of things with it that are going to come out way different when trying to go to extract. The best you could do is use pilsner extract which I could almost guarantee you it is not 100% pilsner and then steep aciduated malt or adjust with acid if you can.

the rest would be the same.

Big differences are that you are not going to do a multi step mash to break down the proteins in an extract and who knows what they mashed their grains at or what grains they used.

Brewed 10 gal batch and FG .006. Great taste before lagering. It's going to be tough to wait 3 more weeks.
