Man does it throw off a nice fruity aroma! If the flavor follows the initial fermentation aroma, it will be a winner....

I tapped my kellerpils last night. It's awesome. I'm so happy with it. It's more hop forward than the typical pilsner but it's not quite an IPL.
Out of curiosity, what type of Pils were you shooting for - German or Bo Pils? What was your water like?
Hey, I met Denny at NHC. Nuff said!
And you didn't even ask for a refund of your membership dues?
Low SRM to High SRM and low ABV to High ABV are ideal but not necessary. Repitching directly in the carboy you just racked out of isn't ideal either, but I have broken these rules as well with no apparent consequences. And I have felt guilty. Especially the dirty carboy full of too much yeast.
You are better off recovering the yeast from the carboy in a jar, cleaning and sanitizing the fermenter and pitching about half or less of the yeast you collected.
