American Pre-Prohibition Lager

Classification: lager, American lager, pilsner, corn, maize, all-grain

Source:, in HBD #1688, 3/24/95

In HBD #1687 a fine upstanding young American known as Jeff Renner ( wrote at great length about his " ***Great Success in Recreating Classic American Pilsner , a Shamefully Neglected Style!***" . I too read Dr. Fix's article with great interest and formulated a recipe for a "corn beer'. I loved it. My thirsty freeloading friends loved it. And I agree with Jeff that red blooded Americans should learn to love it again. This recipe is a direct adaptation from the Brewing Techniques article by Dr. Fix.

Mash schedule = 95 for 15 min., 122 for 30 min., 138 for 15 min., 154 for 45 min., mash out for 15 min. at 164.
