A traditional Bohemian Pilsner with a rich, complex maltiness and a crisp finish.Our Bohemian Pilsner is deep gold in appearance with a high bitterness and long lasting creamy head. The yeast employed is a classic German Pilsner yeast that leaves a very clean taste. This product is designed to be used with 1.0-1.5 kg (2.2-3.3lbs) of WilliamsWarn Light Dry Malt Extract and water to make 23/25 litres (6 US gallons/5 Imp. Gallons) of wort. Original Gravity of 1.040-1.048 (10°P- 12°P), fermented to a Final Gravity of about 1.009 (2.3°P), resulting in 4.1-5.2% alcohol by volume, 37 Bitterness Units and 6 SRM/12 EBC colour. Ferment at 18-28ºC / 64-77ºF (ideally near the middle of this range).
As an option, hop aroma and taste can be elevated if the brewer makes a hop tea of 1-2 oz. (28-56 grams) of any Czech (or German) hops in a French coffee press. Add approx. 900ml of hot boiled water to the hops, stir and then steep for 20 minutes. Plunge the solids and add the green, filtered hop tea to the mix of ingredients in your fermenter (before adding the yeast). Download the WilliamsWarn User Manual from our website for more details.
