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 beer for a hot summer day.
This is a great beer for after working outside during the hot summer months. Good flavor light and drinkable. Will brew this again next summer.

An easy drinking summer beer
I'm not usually a fan of lighter styles of beer, but on a hot summers day- these hit the spot, truly. One of the first lighter styles I've ever brewed...would definitely consider stepping up to the 5 gal big-brother.

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

Honey Country Pilsener
Still conditioning... With warmer weather coming what effect with using an ale yeast next brew?

Response from Northern Brewer
Ale yeast would ferment the beer alright, but it would not have that clean yeast character or the clarity. It might have a bit more haze, and it might be a bit fruitier.

Simple to brew
Straight forward brew kit. The "one" pound of malt mix really only weighs 14oz.

Pretty Good
Fermented Primary about 7 days at 55F with 3 days d-rest at 62F and lagered in secondary for 1 month at 45F. I wasn't too impressed with it as I tasted no honey and it came out a little hoppy with half an ounce of williamette. It is pretty crisp but the hops over power it as it is at 38IBUs according to BeerSmith. Color is nice golden and very clear.

I brewed this beer and fermented for 2 weeks. Bottled for 2 weeks and tried one. It tasted off, like almost an apple juice flavor. It was carbonated well. What might I have done wrong? First time brewing so I didn't take Original or Final gravity. I've been doing so with my current brews

BEST ANSWER: i would just give it more time, if you followed the directions, did the prep work of sterilizing everything it will work. not having patience is a brewers nightmare.
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?
