My pseudo pilsner, unfined. Made with extra pale malt, some melanoidin for colour (admittedly a bit too much) and some dextrin for head retention. SAB T90 hops at 60 minutes for 23 IBUs, and some Perle and Saaz at flameout. No-chill, poured into fermenter and fermented with S-04. This beer ended up being "forgotten" at 10°C after fermentation (life happened) and the outside of the fermenter grew mold like crazy. I had little hopes for it, but ended up kegging it after tasting a sample which actually tasted fine. It sat in the keg (unfined) for 2 months before producing this crystal clear beer that went down REALLY well.

Man. That beer is a survivor. What was your no-chill method?

After the boil I tapped directly into the fermenter, and put the fermenter under airlock with pure ethanol (hand sanitizer). The air being sucked in then is at least passed through the alcohol, IMO.

I pitched yeast the next morning, and the fermentation went perfectly. I'm pretty glad the beer survived, it was a good drinker!
