#65  Pilsner
12.5 lbs Pilsner Malt
0.25 lbs Melanoidin Malt
1.25 oz Sterling pellet hops (5.3%AA) (60 min)
1.1 oz Sterling pellet hops (5.3%AA) (30 min)
0.6 oz Sterling pellet hops (5.3%AA) (10 min)
1 oz Sterling pellet hops (5.3%AA) (0 min)
1/2 gallon starter WLP-800 Pilsner Lager Yeast
- Brewed 8 June 2008.  Valve error, leading to loss of first 1/2
gallon of runnings, plus boilovers, so not as good an SG as I'd
like.  This *should* be an easy brew; seems to be cursed!  OG
1.052 (63% efficiency).
- Kegged 26 July 2008.  Refractometer says 9.8 degrees.  This
will stay in the lagering chest until time to tap.
