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.

I am very happy with this purchase and recipe. This is my first online order. I was a bit skeptical about the completeness and freshness of the ingredients, but I was happily surprised. The ingredients were super fresh and the recipe very comprehensive. The finished product has great flavor and is my clearest batch yet. No sediment at all, you can drink the beer directly from the bottle. I will buy again from NB. I did make my own yeast starter and used a secondary fermenter, as suggested. Thanks.
Brewed well and hit numbers, it's lagering in the keezer currently so looking forward to trying it in two weeks.
This was my first attempt at a lager style beer and my second all grain attempt. Came out great. Best tasting beer I've brewed so far and better tasting than most of the micro brewery pilsners I've had. Very clear after 6 weeks lagering. Pours with a beatiful white head like a Czech pilsner should. I had a slightly higher original gravity than the specified target and hit the target final gravity resulting in a ~5.4% beer. I followed the multi-step process in the instructions and made a 1500ml starter using the Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils yeast. I will make this again and probably add a little more Saaz hops --- it doesn't really need it, but I'm a hophead and really like the Saaz hops.
Proper Czech Pilsner recipe. Responds well to six weeks of conditioning and use of biofine to produce a crisp clear delicious lager.
Still lagering while the weather is cold. No lager is ready before it's time.
