Czech Pilsner All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
If we had to pick just one style that embodies everything a beer should be, Czech Pilsner might be it: this lager showcases both malt and hops but allows some expression of yeast character; mellow enough to drink a few half-liters but technical enough to demand care in brewing. Clear, deep golden color, foamy white head, medium-full body with caramelly malt and spicy hop character, firm bitterness giving way to a soft finish.
Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Will brew this one again
I haven’t made it yet
and even better beer, 12° Pilsner Lager. I used step mash - modified infusion mash - as described in Greg Noolan’s Brewing Lager Beer in a HERMS system. Three kits for 15 gallon batch. I used seventh generation of 34/70 recycled yeast, fermented under pressure 15 psi/38°F in my Ss 1/2 bbl Unitank for 3 weeks. No finings, tasty and bright.
This was a tasty brew. It could use a tad bit more of the Saaz hops, but turned out very good and did not last long once everyone tasted it. Used Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils yeast and a big starter. Fermented at 50-55, did a 48 hour rest at 70 cold crashed for 48 hours, kegged and let sit for about 10 days. Was VERY clear with no off flavors whatsoever.
