Do you like Samuel Adam's Golden Pilsener? This is our version of the new breed of Pilsner beers from American microbreweries. Boston Pilsner isn't like the mass-produced beers the Mega-Breweries. Boston Pilsner is stronger, with a deep golden color, with enough malt and hops in it to taste them! The finest quality North American malt extract and grains are used to make Boston Pilsner. Imported Noble hops are used exclusively for bitterness, flavor, and aroma.
Style: American Microbrewery-style Pilsener
Color: Deep Golden
Bohemian Pilsner is one of the world's classic beer styles. This recipe has a moderately light body with a hint of malt sweetness. The color is golden, and malt flavors are rich, complimented by the use of Noble Czech and German hops for rounded bitterness and strong floral noble hop aroma.
Style: Bohemian-Style Pilsener
Do you like Pilsner Urquell or Budvar? This is our version of the style that originated the Pilsner name. Czech pilsner is a moderately-light bodied beer with golden color. Imported hops from the Czech Republic and Germany are used for flavor and aroma. Our "Home Brewdvar" recipe uses a large amount of relatively low-power hops to achieve its highly-hopped flavor, so it's rich in secondary hop characteristics instead of just plain bitterness. This recipe ferments well at a wide range of fermentation temperatures, thanks to the authentic Czech strain of "Tuborg" pilsner yeast we use. Good results can be achieved at temperatures between 50 and 74 degrees, so a good comfortable room or basement is all you need. Czech Pilsner that's warm-fermented will mellow out a lot if you give the bottles some cold lagering time in the refrigerator after they've had a chance to carbonate.
Style: Czech-Style Pilsener
This is one of the classic German beer styles. Bavarian Pilsner has medium-light body and deep golden color. The malt flavors are clean and crisp, with very little sweetness. German hops are used exclusively in this recipe. Hop flavor and aroma are considerably lower than in the Czech-style pilsner. There is a definite clean hop bitterness which is a bit stronger than Oktoberfest, and much stronger than American-style Pilsner.
Style: German Bavarian-Style Pilsener
