This classic American Pilsner recipe is courtesy of Jack Horzempa.

The recipe as written will gain body and a mild sweetness from the use of flaked maize (corn). For a lighter, crisper take on the style, replace the corn with flaked rice. And for a more modern interpretation, replace the six-row malt with your favorite North American two-row Pilsner malt. Any way you brew it, this classic American lager is sure to refresh!
