It's almost time!Not to hijack the thread (ok, maybe a little), but this seems germane to the discussion. Great Fermentations of Indiana is hosting a Pilsner Malt Showcase event on Saturday, January 11th. It's free and you can sign up for a 1pm or 3pm time slot.
Yours truly brewed seven (yes seven) five gallon batches w/ 100% Pils malt within a 10 day period-- each brewed identically (same yeast, water, hops, process) with one of seven North American and Continental pilsner malts. All the maltsters/malts have been mentioned previously in this discussion, plus there will be a few more. I brewed them to the high-end of Helles-Export specs. I have put together a blind evaluation sheet for participants to complete (which I will scan and return for their reference along w/ the "reveal" on each sample) rating the finished beer for flavor & aroma characteristics typical of pilsner malts (bready, crackery, honey, grainy, etc etc).
I'll post results here in January.
