Crisp and refreshing! Ich Bin Ein Pilsner is a classic German Pilsner originally developed by a former Great Fermentations employee who has gone on to greener pastures and sweeping the 2015 Indiana Brewer's Cup in the professional category! The recipe is relatively simple, but then again, so is a truly good German Pils! Nothing more than some Pilsner malt and noble Saaz hops round out this recipe, which lead to a crisp, refreshing Pilsner beer that can be enjoyed by all. While a traditional lager yeast can be used to ferment this beer, using the California Lager yeast can lead to great lager without too cool of temperatures.
