Light or mid pilsner recipe

Recommended Posts

Hi just wondering if anyone could help me make 2 pilsner recipes from kits.

1 mid and the other a light that still taste good and hopefully not to watery. Would grains help in a pilsner?

 Cheers

Coopers or Black Rock both have Pils kits. However, they both come with ale yeasts and instructions for brewing with those.

I tried Coopers and got a bland, malty lager. To brew a pils, you'll need temp control and a lager yeast which brews at 10-15C, and lots of time to brew and store it.

I thought the Coopers Pilsner kit came with a Lager yeast.

Yep, it’s a Lager yeast.

Perhaps use the 86 Days Pilsner kit with 500g DME.

Yes it did. I swapped it out as I didn't have a fridge.
