Our different beer sets have different contents and amounts of malt. Some brewing machines can not have room for all the malt. If you choose to go beyond the manufacturer's recommendation, you will be able to experience lower yields (less OG) and you may also experience so-called "stuck mash" (the strainer becomes clogged and circulation / runoff becomes difficult).

Quite possibly the most iconic beer style in modern history, the pilsner captured the attention of beer drinkers across the world and inspired a myriad of regional imitations. This lightly colored, exquisitely balanced lager remains one of the most loved beers to enjoy, and one of the most challenging for the brewer to create. Pilsner are characteristically light in color and have a very short finish. The world over, pilsner -style lagers have become the standard beer for many reasons, and American craft brewers have worked hard to put their own unique spin on this classic German beer.
German-Style Pilsner Beer
A classic German-style pilsner is straw to pale in color with a malty sweetness that can be perceived in aroma and flavor. Perception of hop bitterness is medium to high. Noble-type hop aroma and flavor are moderate and quite obvious. Distinctly different from the Bohemian-style pilsner , this style is lighter in color and body and has a lower perceived hop bitterness.
German Pilsner Lager in America
German pilsner lagers have a rich history in the United States. Some of the first breweries in the United States were started in the 1800s by German immigrants and specialized in brewing pilsner beer. Since then, American craft brewers have continued to experiment with the classic style pils. Like other German beers, pilsner lager’s crisp finish makes for a refreshing beer during the warmer months of the year. We want to help you find the next pilsener beer to keep you refreshed on a hot summer day.
