I have a question about a Bohemian Pilsner I'm brewing.
Well, I tasted the stuff in the carboy. It's REALLY SWEET,
as compared to most brews I've had, and color is a dark gold.
- 3.3 lbs. Northwestern Gold ME
- 4.0 lbs. Alexander's Pale ME
- 2.0 oz. Saaz plugs (60 minutes-bittering)
- 1.0 oz. Saaz plugs (30 minutes-flavor)
- 1.0 oz. Saaz plugs (2 minutes-aroma)
- 1/2 oz Saaz plugs (dry hop)
- Wyeast Bohemian Yeast directly from the pack(no starter)
I boiled the extract, 1 1/2 gallons water and hops as indicated in
the recipe for one hour. Added everything by siphoning into a plastic
water jug with 3 gallons cold water. Topped off with cold water.
Waited for everything to drop to 65 and pitched the yeast. I let the
stuff sit at around 65 for 1 day and then placed it in the back room
of my basement where it sits at a nice 45 all day and night.
I racked to a secondary after 12 days (glass carboy) and dry hopped.
It's been in the secondary for two days now and I took a SG reading
and got 1.013. I had completely forgotten to take an OG reading, but
looking at other Pilsner recipies, it seems 1.021 is a common final
