PIlsner Break
« on: January 15, 2010, 09:19:33 PM »

First time brewing pilsner.  Usually brew ales.  Got a huge chunky break soon after boil.  ???

Is that hot break?  Pretty early?  Is it something specific to PIlsner malt?

Sounds like hot break, and yes, pilsner malt is notorious for producing a lot of it.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Yep, if you DON'T see that when brewing with Pilsner malt, you're doing something wrong.
