Hello, I want to start a new brew this week. It will be my second time brewing after making my Dampfbier.

I want to create a golden pale lager / pilsner style beer. If I was to use only one type of malt such as Pilsner or Pale malt for my bill what would you envision the outcome to be? Boring and little character?

I wanted to use my entire bill of one of these malts with a noble hop.

Cheers :mug:

Some of the best beers in the world have incredibly simple recipes. If you're making a lager I would go with pilsner malt.

Pilsner malt and a noble hop makes a great recipe. Go for it.

As long as you can also keep the fermentor well under 58°F (52-54°F being nominal) it will make good lager/Pilsner.

You'll need to make a large yeast starter though...
