One beer I want to make calls for a pilsen, but would Xlight be close enough? What could I add to bring it closer to pilsen?

I do want to do a wheat, but I will just have to get a wheat extract for that I think..agreed?

Thanks for any help on these 2 specifics.

deleted the rest b/c I finally hit the right search terms to get my light vs X-light answer

Extra light should be pretty close to Pilsen. Just stay clear of English extracts. You can get Briess Pilsner extract.
If you want to do a wheat, you will need wheat.

There are only 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.
