Do you think Weyermann dark will make a good czech pils
« on: December 04, 2015, 12:31:19 AM »
I bought some Weyermann Bohemian dark tonight, between 5-8L. I was planning a classic Czech Pilsner. Do you think the dark will be too over the top or make a nice slightly out of style Czech pils.

Thanks for your wisdom.

going to be very bock like or rich festbeer vs pilsner. not that that's bad, just isn't going to resemble a czech pils per se.

If I am drinking it, only depends on 2 things.... Is it cold, Is it alcoholic?  But most likely couldn't refer to it as a Classic Czech Pils

I think you're all right. I'm gonna go back and get the weyermann bohemian floor malted pils. I'm thinking I can brew the Czech pils and then repitch into a bock or maybe a Schwarzbier. :)

I would say set up the mash profile so it ferments nice and dry. That way you won't have a sweet bock-like finish, but the richness of the malt. Could be really nice, yeah.

Why not a 2015 3D Czech Dark Lager?

I'm on a similar course for my next brew.  But shooting for more of a Czech Amber.  60% Bo Pils malt, 35% Bohemian dark malt, and some Carabohemian.  The SRM is looking like around 8.5, so even with that grain bill, too dark for a Pilsner.

This will only work while doing a wood fired triple decoction, wearing lederhosen, and fantasying about Julie Andrews circa Sound of Music.

Sorry Czech Pils - replace lederhosen with a wool coat and Julie Andrews with a Mucha poster.

Yes but eltons johns version of circle of life here goes something like this:

In the Circle of Beer
It's the threads of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find "IT"
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Beer
