Product Details

Harkening back to the old country tradition of using anything fresh and local in brewing, we’ve worked with Ames Farm of Minnesota to deliver a seasonal single source honey that pairs perfectly with this delicate German-style pilsner. The unique German lager strain can work over a wide range of temperatures, so refrigeration isn’t a constraint, though cool temperatures will help keep the lean, crisp character extra clean and sparkly. Whether you make it clean or characterful, you’ll love the sojourn of the senses that comes with this dry, hint ‘o honey pilsner.

Great taste!
As with all one gallon kits, the instructions make the process a breeze. Really enjoy the smooth taste. Will definitely brew this one again.

great brew
I love this brew and want 5 gallons of it! It is not offered as a 5 gallon kit although when I asked via their live chat, they gave me an itemized list of everything i needed to do a 5 gallon batch along with instructions and links to every item... Fantastic response by the NB staff.. I plan to order the whole lot soon...

Honey Country
Easy brew to make, definitely a hot summer day beer. Easily drinkable and everyone that tried the beer enjoyed it.

Nice crisp pilsner with a hit of honey on the back end. I added 2oz extra local honey and it was the right thing to do. Great flavor without being sweet. Excellent brew and very temperature tolerant yeast. Avg. temp was 60F.

Easy peasy!
This has been the simplest kit I have done so far. I just love the smell of the wort boiling. What better thing can you do on a fall Sunday afternoon but make the house smell like beer. Perfect.

I made this beer for my father-in-law who is a "fizzy yellow beer" drinker. He loved it and has since stuck a toe into the craft beer world. Sam Adams was a huge step for him! I plan to make another batch for a friend who is also a "fizzy" beer drinker.

Pleasant, smooth and well-balanced
This was my third-ever batch of beer and I'm quickly getting better at leaving the trub in the kettle. Fermented normally and conditioned quickly in early fall garage temps. Cracked a few open at our sons' birthday party this weekend, and guests were impressed. Very rewarding to make such good-tasting brew that other beer lovers like, too. The pilsner is flavorful and refreshing, and goes down really easily. To top it all off, this evening when coming home from work with the kids, my wife (and chief bottling technician) handed a cold pint of our pilsner as I walked in the door. That is a satisfying feeling.

In one review they said it was very hoppy, I would like to brew this but do not like hoppy beers, is this a very hoppy beer. or more like cream ale ?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It has been a while since I brewed this beer. I don't recall it being hoppy or quite like a pilsner. I recall it being flavorable. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
I've made many northern recipes, however the honey country Pilsner was the only one that I had bad results. It never produced CO2 during the bottling conditioning phase. I used the candy sugar provided. Could it have been bad yeast? I'm very meticulous about sanitation.
S C on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used the candy tablets for four different one gallon trial beers, the honey Pilsner being the last one made. I have the same concerns about the tablets, but I have processed the beer in the very cool weather of the U.P. of Michigan. I had some mild CO2 in the Pilsner and almost no CO2 in the Irish Red. Like you, I am not sure if the candy tablets are part of the problem, or if the colder weather is part of the problem with the final stage since the house is still very cool (68 degrees) when the beers are bottled. I plan to try another Pilsner since we really like the flavor, but this time I'll make two one gallon batches, one with the tablets and one with corn syrup. Then I'll be able to compare the results. I'll also have a chance to let the carbonation occur in temps of 70 to 75 degrees in the house during the final carbonation stage. Have fun with the project during your next batch, and if you like experimenting, as I do, pick up the book by Charlie Papazian on Home Brewing. It has a wealth of info for those of us just entering the craft brewing hobby.
I wanted to brew this again as 5 gallons. Could you tell me what ingredients I should buy?
KRISTINA S on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To do five gallons of that, you could get 5 lbs of Pilsen DME; 2.5 oz of Willamette hops; 10 oz honey; and one Saflager W-34/70 yeast. Basically, just scaling it all up for 5 gallons. Happy Brewing! -Mike W, Northern Brewer
If I brew this kit with a lager yeast at ale temperature, would the beer be close to a steam beer?
R O on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not really. That would probably be buttery and tangy and the hop flavor would not have the characteristic wood and mint of a steam.
I will be using a 1.75 gallon keg. to dispense. Any thought on how to make 1.75 gallons---maybe make 2 gallons and throw away .25 gallon?
Loren I on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You could make a one gallon batch and still be able to carbonate and dispense from your 1.75 gallon keg. Or else if you wanted to get full capacity out of the keg you could either double up the batch and make two gallons then bottle condition the extra .25 gallon or you could just make it a 1.75 gallon batch and the gravity would be a little higher.
Can this kit be used for a true lager double fermentation? Changes to the directions?
