A friend of mine and I are going to be brewing a Pilsner this weekend with some kiwi. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for some good specialty grains and malts to use We're going to be kind of winging it so any suggestions would be great...thanks.

Also, hop ideas we want a medium to medium high hop flavor and bitterness.

Thanks

Malt: i would play it simple. Probably 100% pils. Any specialty malts you use might get in the way of the kiwi flavor.

Hops: same goes for hops. Keep it simple/low to make room for the kiwi. I would tone down the flavor to let the kiwi come through. As far as types, a german noble would be a sure thing, IMO.
