1st ever Pilsner

(1/2) > >>

Came in a little high on O.G. at 1.064 but since I was trying to split wort into 2 different
Beers...other is a Saison that gravity is a fair compromise between the two.
5 Gallons Pilsner w/ Fermentis  dry s 23
5 Gallons Saison w/ 3711 yeast

Looks like it will make beer   ;)

That may pair well with my 1.064 Vienna I brewed earlier this week ;D

Have you used S-23 before?  I did once and didn't like it, but I hear it's not bad if you ferment in the mid-50s rather than the high 40's  like a traditional lager.

I have Not used it before.  It was the only lager I could get that was ready and timely.  I read some unfavorable
comments on it as well....I plan to ferment at 50* and am going to pitch and oxygenate highly this morning.
The thing that I worry about is the stress incuded by the high OG.

I don't think that will be a problem.  How many packs of S-23 are you going to pitch?  BTW, I've tasted beers made with S-23 that were pretty good, but none of them have been mine!  I really hope you have better luck with it than I did.
