German Pilsner, March 19 2008

German Pilsner - Brewed March 19th, 2008
I'm a huge fan of euro pilsners. There's surprisingly lots of variety in pilsners. Ideally, I would have liked to do a double decoction on this one but I wanted to squeeze in two separate 5 gallon batches today. In the interest of time, I opted for a step infusion mash that I use.
5 Gallons, All Grain, Step Infusion Mash, 70 Min. Boil

11lbs. Franco-Belges Pilsner

1/2oz. Homegrown Magnum 60min.
