About this Recipe: 

We’ve gone back to the classics for this recipe. Simple ingredients that produce a thirst quenching German pilsner great to have around for the first thaw into spring. Keep fermentation in the low 50’s with a diacetyl rest in the high 60’s near the end of fermentation and you’ll end up with a crisp, clean traditional German-style lager!
