good LME for sure Review by kevin

This LME is a great starting point for just about any beer you make. This LME is a great go-to fermentable for any brewer. Would suggest to anyone who uses malt extracts. (Posted on 12/12/13)
Awesome extract! Review by Tom

I have used NB Pilsen extract in several brews but where it really shined was in in a partial mash Kolsch style that I brewed recently. The recipe specifically stated to use a German Pilsner extract but I substituted NB's for this late addition with great results! It helped to produce a very crisp, clean, pale colored ale. I'll definitely be using this again! (Posted on 10/23/13)
Good stuff... Review by MT

I’m a partial grain brewer and I’ve used this extract three times in some Belgian styles (Dark Strong, Golden Strong and a Saison). So far I’m impressed. Each of these beers had a base that consisted of 6-7 lbs of Belgian pilsner and about 6 lbs of this extract. No one (including some experienced all-grain brewers) could believe the beers were partial grain. (Posted on 6/10/12)

Best LME I've tried Review by Ron
After a five-year lapse in brewing, I decided to pick it back up with an extract batch. I don't even remember a pilsen LME being available 5 years ago. I had to try it.

I used 6 pounds of this extract along with 1 pound of rice solids and I gotta tell you that it made a wort as light, or lighter, than all-grain batches I've made with 6-row and rice. It's been in the primary for two weeks and it tastes great. I defy anyone to detect any extract used in this beer. This is going to be a fantastic brew!

Don't hesitate to try this extract. (Posted on 10/13/11)
Beer Color Experiment Review by Brett
Rating
I wanted to brew the palest all-malt ale possible with Northern Brewer's range of LME, so chose 6lb of Pilsener malt (approx OG=1042 in 5 galls). I boiled the LME in 2.5 galls water with 2/3 oz Northern Brewer hops (9.4%AA) for 60 mins, adding 1 Whirlfloc tablet 15 mins before the end and 1/3 oz NB hops at 5 mins. Chilled and made up to 5 galls. Fermented with Safale US-05 yeast for 7 days, racked to secondary for 7 days, then racked to bottling bucket and bottled. Just tasted after approx one month in bottle.
Colorwise, the beer tested out at 6 EBC according to my trusty Homebrew Color Guide slide (copyright 1993 by Dennis Davison!), which puts it at the upper end of “golden” or lower end of “amber”. The Brewers Association style guidelines define a color of “light amber” which seems about right for this beer. So if you want a lowish OG golden or pale ale (or lager) then this would fit the bill, but I don't think that a “straw” or “pale” colored beer would be feasible.
Other observations on this brew are that it is a pleasant-tasting, light-bodied ale with medium bitterness and little hop character. Enjoyable summer quaffing. I will certainly be using this NB Pilsener LME again. (Posted on 8/6/11)
Does the job well Review by Happy Cellar Brewery

I've used the pilsner LME for many brews (pilsners, kolsches and some very light colored Belgians) and have never been disappointed. Nice color, flavor and the gravity is always where I want it. Great for when you want to make a light beer (not that sort of "lite") and don't have the time or inclination to go all-grain. (Posted on 3/7/11)
Clean, fresh product Review by Tater Salad

I've used this product as a base malt for years and won awards from brewers who could not believe it was extract beer. Add additional steeping grains such as caramel to adjust to your recipe. (Posted on 1/12/11)
Fresh and cheap Review by Jake

Ignore the one star review, that guy messed up somewhere along the way or doesn't know how to take gravity readings.

Good light LME, addition of carapils is a nice bonus. (Posted on 7/12/10)
VERY LOW PPG (1.023+/-) Review by Geezer
Rating
I just got through brewing an IPA. When I did the math ahead of time, I should have had an OG of 1.068 or so with all of my fermentables. 7 pounds of LME 1 pound of caramel 40, .75 lb. of corn sugar, and .75 lb. of table sugar. My actual OG was more like 1.042, talk about disappointment .I cant think of anything other than their statement of 1.036 as just being flat out wrong. If I had known , I would have added more sugar but I took their word for it . Buy 2 6lb. jugs for yourself and youll be safe. I bought some wheat and amber extract also ,I'll let you know when I use them how far off their calculations are. Hopefully youll have better luck than me. (Posted on 7/9/10)
Good, versatile LME Review by HEFE300

Makes a great lawmower beer/pilsner with just a little hops and a packet of yeast. Couldn't be simpler. I'd use this as a base for more complex beers as well. It's just a a versatile, quality product. (Posted on 4/8/10)
