YMK Pilsner

Here is a full strength export pilsner modeled after the traditional Bavarian style and spiced with saaz hops.


Place 1 gallon of water into the brew kettle. Bring the water to a boil.

Place the hops into a boiling bag and add them to the pot. Stir in the dried malt extract and boil for 10 minutes. Stir the kettle frequently to completely dissolve DME and prevent darkening the wort.

Turn off the heat and remove the hop bag. Stir in the malt extract syrup. Keep stirring to ensure syrup is fully dissolved, taking special care to run the spoon along bottom of pot. Add one gallon of cold water to the kettle. Pour remaining water into your fermenter then add the cooled wort. Pitch yeast when temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees. Ferment and bottle using your usual methods.
