What's Brewing This Weekend - 3/8 Edition

<< < (7/7)

After brewing for +14 years, on Saturday I brewed my first pilsner (11 gallons), based on Pilsner Urquell but no decoctions.  I did, however, do a step infusion mash that hit close to the 3 PU decoction rest temps, and nearly nailed my desired OG.  To keep diacetyl production to a minimum I pitched at 45F and it just got up to 50F after 48 hrs, where I will leave it for the remainder of the ferment, using WY 2001.  I used Best Premium Pils malt, and am pretty excited about this beer.
