This is a noble brew with a crisp finish.
Our Dutch Pilsner is straw-coloured in appearance with a moderate, lingering bitterness. The yeast employed is a classic strain that leaves a slightly estery aroma that is typical of Pilsners from The Netherlands. When used with our light DME to make an all-malt beer, the combination of ingredients makes a Pilsner very true to the region. The yeast under the lid is an 11g pack of Fermentis S-23 lager yeast which is commonly used by large breweries in Western Europe.
Original Gravity of 1.045 (11.25°P), fermented to a Final Gravity of about 1.009 (2.3°P), resulting in 4.8% alcohol by volume, 22 Bitterness Units and 3 SRM/6 EBC colour. Ferment at 18-28ºC / 64-77ºF (ideally near the middle of this range).
