Honestly, this was only my second lager. I am more of a dark brew drinker but most of my friends from the backwoods of TN like the ligher brews like Miller Lite, Bud, Coors, etc...

Well, since I like to keep the dark stuff for me I decided I'd give this Pilsner a try. It actually turned out really good even though I'm not really into the lighter colored brews.

I found a recipe on the web and tweaked it a bit by adding the Crystal and changing the yeast used.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

If a man speaks in a desert where no woman can hear; is he still wrong?

if your friends mostly like lite BMC beers then a beer with IBU of 77 would probably seem insanely bitter to them. maybe try cutting those hop additions to 1oz each.
is there anything to be said for saying another mass?
