Beer Recipes / Does a BoPils have to include Saaz hops?
« on: February 07, 2014, 04:24:16 PM »
I made a BoPils with Hersbrucker instead of Saaz for flavor. This beer is tasting very nice right now out of the keg. I was thinking of entering it into a competiton as a BoPils and was wondering if it would get dinged badly for not having Saaz flavor and aroma?

That should be fine. Last year I made a Vienna Lager that had a lot of diacetyl. I didn't degass the keg, but simply warmed it up to about 65-68 for about a week. I was glad I didn't dump the batch because it turned out great.

I don't know anything about that yeast strain. A guy in my club open ferments all of his beers by covering the fermentor loosely with plastic wrap. His beers are top notch, in fact, he won a gold in the NHC in 2003. He got the idea of open fermentation after visiting Jolly Pumpkin and checking out their facility.

I've tasted my German Pils only a week in the keg and I'm very pleased.

I'm going to keg mine Tuesday or Wednesday and begin the lagering process. I really have nothing to compare it to since this is my first pilsner that I've brewed that wasn't a kit.
I think it is similar to Best. I also have used the Avangard Munich in a Munich Dunkel which is still fermenting and the aroma was nice. The few grains I chewed on were tasty. I plan on making another lager soon with 100% of the Pils to really get an idea of the flavor.

Very nice! I would like to try some of those beers. It's nice to see a small brewery that specializes in lagers.

So far I've used it in a German Pils, an American Barleywine(50/50 with 2 row for base), and a Belgian Dubbel. I even used some of the Avangard Munich in the Dubbel. I haven't tasted yet, but the efficiency was high.

If I'm still doing extract brews at this point, can purchase milled malts in place of DME or LME? Is there a way to avoid buying the DME/LME while doing extract brews?
No, that is called all-grain brewing. You can check out or try BIAB. WARNING - Brewing obsession could get turned up to 11.

Post your recipe on here before you brew. It took me a long time to figure out the different flavors that specialty grains add to overall flavor of the beer. We won't be shy at picking your recipe apart or not.

I got to brew on a Brew Magic system about a month ago. My buddy wrote the Android ap for them and we got use it for a weekend. It was very nice, but it was kinda like test driving a nice sports car for a week and then having to give it back. :-[
