Very impressive. Congrats!Yes, I cut my water with 2/3 distilled water to get close to the source water.
Care to share any tips? I've made a lot of German pilsners but haven't tried a boh pils yet. Did you go with the ultra-soft water?
Double decoction, 95% floor-malted Wyerman Pils malt and 5% Vienna, all Saaz hops at about 35 IBU's, 860 Bock yeast. I had split the batch and used Pils yeast on the other half, which didn't have the malt complexity.
Care to share more details, like a more exact hop schedule??? if not, I understand...
For 10 gallons:
75 minute boil
@60 - 3 oz of 3.2% Saaz pellets
@30 - 4 oz
@10 - 2 oz
Set the fridge to 46
Looking at my notes, it was Wyeast 860, which is the Helles yeast, not the Bock yeast.
Edit to add batch size
