The Pilsner beer style originated in the Czechoslovakian city of Pilsen around the year 1842. Thus began the evolution from dark cloudy beers to golden bright beers. This Bohemian style is characterized by a golden color, soft malty flavor balanced by dry finish and a pleasant hop bouquet. It has a moderate alcohol content (4-5%) and an assertive hop bitterness.
The Harvest Gold Kit contains:
- Pilsner Malt extract
- 2 lbs specialty grain
- Priming DME
- Fining agents
- Fermentis SafLager W34/70 (Lager) or Fermentis Safale US-05 Ale Yeast
Each Bacchus Batches kit is formulated to produce a specific style of beer. Since the quantity and alpha acid in hops vary sometimes significantly from one year to the next or from one bale to the next we adjust the varieties and amounts of hops in Bacchus Batches kit to provide consistent results.
