Pilsner Urquell type Lager

Here’s a recipe I intend to make in the near future:

 

Pilsner Urquell – 5 gallons

8.5 lb pilsner malt

8 oz  crystal malt

8 oz  cara-pils malt

4 oz Saaz Hops

Lager yeast

 

Water should be soft.  Mash at 68 centigrade for 90 minutes, sparge, then boil 2 hours. Add hops: 2 ounces of Saaz 60 minutes before end of boil, 1 ounce 30 minutes before end of boil, and 1 ounce in last 10 minutes of boil

 

Notes (not included in recipe…)

  1. Put grain into cold water & raise to temperature slowly.
  2. Possible change the 2 oz of saaz early in the boil for a decent bittering hop.
  3. Open fermentation for a few days (5 days or so?), followed closed fermentation in a cold environment for many months (spare room during winter) prior to bottling.
