Fermenting: 14/01/2006 Bottled: 30/01/2006
The main ingredient is a can of Wal’s Pilsner. Described thusly:
A light crisp Australian pilsner. Supplied with lager yeast it produces a slightly dry refreshing drop. Country Brewer
This should be another excellent beer. A summer interpretation on the best beer style in the world.
A modern pilsener has a very light, clear color from pale to golden yellow, and a distinct hop aroma and flavor. Czech pilseners tend toward a lighter flavor, while those in a German style can be more bitter or even “earthy” in flavor. Wikipedia
Fermentation Update: I can’t believe it. This beer is still fermenting after 10 days of high temperatures. My air conditioning is not that efficient – there certainly aren’t lager-like temperatures happening here. Maybe we’ll get a good pils from this slow fermentation, but I’m not too convinced of that.
Bottling notes: Probably should have added the extra hops after a few days – the saaz aroma wasn’t overly strong. Should be pretty easy to drink, and will hopefully improve with time.
