I just made this. Went straight for the regular ingredients but I scaled it down to 3 gallons. Didn't have pure clover honey so I used a blend of a few types, didn't have the right pilsner yeast so I used saflager-34/70 which said it was a german style lager yeast.
Luckily my LHBS did have saphir hops, so I got to try these babies out. Right now the primary is bubbling so furiously that I've had to change out my blowoff collection bowl already. Hasn't even been 24 hours. Wondering if the honey added so much fermentables that it's going nuts.
First pilsner for me. First lager. First time using honey. First three gallon batch. Too many firsts?
UPDATE: Lost probably a beer or two's worth of wort from blowoff. Is this normal? Super strong fermentation.. I had it going at probably 64 degrees for a day, realized that might be too much and so I moved the primary to my basement, which is about 54 degrees. I hope I didn't screw this up.
