Why aren’t prunes in this discussion?  They’re the same thing.
That's like saying grapes are the same as raisins. Not the same.

I added some plum puree to a barrel a couple months ago (saison) it was pretty tasty last time I tried it.

I recommend some edging material so you don’t slice your arm/hand.

Something like this; https://www.brewhardware.com/product_p/edgingft.htm

I had forgotten about that fascinating blog. Such great and interesting information!

Seems like there should be countless better options out there for stainless food grade cool ships apart from cutting a keg open but I guess I can't think of any right now....

Don't do a protein rest unless that Pils malt is about 60 years old.

+1 no need for protein rest with most of today's malts

There's being frugal and then there is just being dumb. Grow up some liquid yeast. In 1-2week you could grow up a 70 hectoliter pitch from a single colony and have a batch you can be sure is pure rather than messing around and failing in the end product.

We ban any distilling talk on this forum. Sorry. There are other forums that talk distilling do a search for them.

Make a 50%/50% water/vinegar solution and soak it in that. It will look like brand new.

  Majorvices has the very model of a perfect comp entry,  though.   :)

10 bucks says it would get dinged for being too "light" lol

BTW I used to do a Hockurz mash on all my lagers but ended up getting away from it from a time saving standpoint. I can't say I have noticed much difference. My helles is single infused at 152.

The Munich and Dark Munich addditions have been around for a long time in the homebrew circles as a way to mimic decoction mashing. I don't personally use it any more but I certainly don't think it ruins the beer.

At the risk of being ridiculed I will post my recipe. The one thing I will say about my recipe is that you can try it at Yellowhammer tasting room (and soon in cans elsewhere) so you can determine for yourself if you like it. I personally love it. ;) It is about as low an SRM as it can be and still be included in style guidelines (3.04 SRM)

Helles
1.048
IBU 17.7

98% floor malted bohemian pils malt (Weyerman)
2% cara foam
Magnum @ 60 to 17.7 IBUs

Adjust mash pH to 5.2-5.4
I am glad to hear that beer is coming to cans. I like your Helles. What will it be called?

Thanks! We are doing a special summer promotion with Windmill Beverages so our place and at Windmill Bevs will be the only places you can get it. It will just be called "Helles Golden Lager" with Windmill and Yellowhammer logos.
