American Pilsner - All Grain Recipe Kit
American Pilsner (Dried, Cold) - All Grain Recipe
An easy sessionable beer for those wanting something in the fridge for those mates who want "Something Drinkable". Light in body and colour, American Pilsners are very clean and crisp, and aggressively carbonated. Flavour components should be subtle and complex, with no one ingredient dominating the others. Malt sweetness is light to mild. Corn, rice, or other grain or sugar adjuncts are often used. Hop bitterness, flavour and aroma are negligible to very light. Light fruity esters are acceptable.
