To be honest, I am not sure if I used Weyermann or hoepfner.

Now to chuck my two bob's worth in regarding hops for your Pilsner.
I was lucky enough to purchase some of this seasons New Zealand Saaz B Hop Cones.
Trust me, these are fantastic hops. I have not been able to get any for three years and I pleaded with the folks at New Zealand hops to sell some direct to me and they did.
I do not know if they are available from any of the brew shops but you could only try. I know the pellets area available though.
Weyermann Pilsner or Bohemian Pilsner malt, 5% Weyermann Cara Pils, Saaz B Hops and Whitelabs WLP802 (Czech Budejovice Lager) and you will be as happy as Larry.
I'm up for a Pils debate!tdh said:What happened to the Pils debate?
To me 100% Pils malt = Koelsch
But then again nearly every HB koelsch that I've come across has been 'fiddled' with "a bit of wheat, a touch of carapils, a little Vienna or Munich malt!!!
The problem with the interpretation of guidelines is that you also need to drink German Pilsners and also commercial Koelsch and ideally in Germany. Then one can truly interpret the guidelines.
So why not just mash higher then?Trough Lolly said:... the general consensus is that Carapils (Weyermann or Breiss) does not add any noticeable flavour in addition to the dextrins that it adds to the brew...
Hang on TDH, didn't someone else post that Carapils dosen't add any noticeable flavour? How can it add to the maltiness of the beer then?tdh said:A pils needs to be maltier than a Koelsch and Carapils does the trick.
Used it and loved it. Earlier this year I made a 100% pils and 100% tettnanger German Pilsner.Malnourished said:Not that I'm trying to completely ruin your plans, but I'd be careful with that yeast. I've never used it but it has a reputation for being very finicky. I would think you'd want to pitch real big, ferment cold, diacetyl rest, lager a long time blah blah blah. That said, it's supposed to make real good beer so you might as well go for it.agraham said:I will be using Tetnanger hops and Wyeast munich lager yeast.
