I should add some notes.

I usually make this beer now with clean ale yeasts (my favorite is Mauri Ale yeast) and have fooled die hard Czech Pilsner drinkers.

Pretty much any bittering variety of a low cohumolone, can be used in the boil unless you are FWH'ing (First Wort Hop) the boiling hops. In that case try to use one of the new hybrids that has high IBU and Saaz like flavor. (Though I don't know of any hybrids that currently achieve this).


I use a single infusion and batch sparge now a days (though I have not been brewing for a while do lack of brewing space - soon to be remedied I hope).

Hey Yoop!

Been avoiding the forum since I can not brew (and haven't been able to for a while) due to lack of brew space where I have been living (various places) for the last year and a half. (It was to depressing reading about everyones beer! That and I was way to bloody busy).

Hoping to be able to brew again this spring. In the mean time I have grabbed some apple juice and am playing with yeast strains! Flor yeast/Saf-33. bwahahahaha!

What is the mauri yeast? Haven't tried that one yet, and I love trying new strains.

Sorry for the laste reply. Finally started brewing again and now I'm back on the board..


Mauribrew Ale 514

Has a good description: http://www.the-home-brew-shop.co.uk/...514_Yeast.html


Works well in hot temps (great for those brewing in warm houses)

Fast and clean yeast . Very attentive. Common as snot in Australia. Making inroads in NA. I buy it by the lb. I buy all my yeast by the lb (500g) as it works out much cheaper. I just vacuum seal them.

They also have a wheat (heffe like I hear) yeast and lager yeast.

Going to try this sith Aurora hops instead of northern brewer and saaz. Probably FWH the bittering addition.

Anyone used Aurora in a pilsner? Hops should be here Friday.

Also going to try Mauri Lager yeast for the first time.

Looks good, but what's up with the metric units--are you Canadian?
