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.
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.
