Home Brew May 2014 – Pilsner

Just put down a Pilsner to begin ferment in the lovely mid autumn Canberra weather.

Using the following:

Yeast S-189 Pilsner/German Lager

Morgans Golden Saaz Pilsner kit

CBW Pilsen Light pure malt extract


The specific gravity was 1.043 and is now sitting in the shed to ferment for the next 2 – 3 weeks. I’ll update this post as required and things change.

    Racked this to a second fermenter today for it to do it’s lagering. FG was 1.012, used dry ice to purge any air and reduce the risk/impact of oxidation.
