I am really having a difficult time with what to brew. The recipe I posted yesterday didn't seem to hold up too well to thoughts and suggestions so I will try agian.

2 1/2 gallon boil
5 gallon batch

6# pale malt extract (or extra pale?)

1 # 10L caramel/crystal

1 oz. cascade 60 min

1/2 oz. cascade 30min

1/2 oz. cascade 5 min

Ferment cold with Pilsner Lager Yeast/ thinking white labs 830

Was thinking maybe a 1/2# of caramel for a lighter color. still looking for an amber. Also, thinkin a pound of honey at flame out :confused:

You are at the high end of gravity but the low end of IBU's. Fine, if that's what you are going for, but thought it worth pointing out.

If light color is a goal definately use the extral light DME, at light your SRM is already an 8, w/ a 2-5 style.

All that being said, it'll go down just fine as is :)

I think that will be too much crystal (I don't use ANY in my pilsners). Also, I highly recommend Saaz. It is nice and spicey. Cascades might put to much citrus into your pilsner, which I don't think is to style.

And no honey.
