After all the effort put into making my last two Larger part mash beers i want to do one more summer style lager before the heat of summer hits. I was wondering if u bloke have ever used the Coopers Canadian Blonde or the Morgans Golden Saaz?
I was just going to add 1kg of Dextrose and dry hop with Saaz. So what kit do u advise is the best? <_<

I won a place in the ACT State Championships with the following...
Morgans Golden Saaz.
1 kg of dextrose
S189 preferred or 34/70 yeast.

Primary for 10 days - diacetyl rest for 2.
Rack in secondary with 35 gms of Saaz pellets for 4 weeks.
Rack into CC cube using a GMK In-Line filter for 4-6 weeks.
then bottle or keg.

Really easy - just get the temp right around 15C and it comes out great.

Happy Brewing.

I have had great success with the ESB 3KG Pilsener. I added 15g SAAZ to secondary, but it didn't really need it.

The Coopers Blonde is devilishly easy & quick and produces a very light lawnmower beer.

SJW,

Have you thought of a ESB Fresh Wort - Pilsner?

Well Jase, My last Pilsener was the ESB 3kg Czech, it turned out fine in the end but as it was my first Lager i did not let it ferment long enough and ended up with way too gassy beer. But after recapping a couple of times i got it just right, by which time most of it was gone. I also found that the 3kg ESB Pilsener needs a good 8 weeks or so to mature. It was real good by the time i finished em all. So this time i will know better and thought i might try Kens Golden Saaz Special.
I will let u know how it goes!
