German Pilsner 1.5 Gallon Attempt B

May 20th, 2016

Given the first attempt was more shaking out the bugs in the new brewing system this will be drastically different than the first. Switched to Saaz in this recipe because I initially intended to use Saaz but couldn’t find any in my freezer. In this second attempt everything is larger. The boil volume is 3 gallons with the hope of getting 2 in the fermenter.

On a side note I got my torpedo keg in from Morebeer. Man it’s a nice little thing. Interesting enough the keg says 1.6 gallons even though the Morebeer website lists it as 1.5 gallons.
