Has anyone brewed Ken’s Brauhaus Helles? found here
I would like to try this as my first lager and wanted to know if anyone has tried it. Do you think it’s forgiving enough for my first lager?
For those who don’t like to click on links here is the recipe:
8.5 lbs Pilsner Malt
12 oz Vienna
12 oz Munich Light
4 oz Belgian Aromatic (mash temp 152°)
3 AAU Spalt pellets plus 2 AAU Hallertau pellets for 60 minutes
Wyeast 2124 Bohemian Lager yeast
OG: 1.053, FG: 1.013, IBU: 22, SRM: 5, ABV: 5.2%
I’ll probably be swapping the WY2124 for WLP830 cause that’s all my LHBS carries.
I planned on a 90 min boil, ferment at 50* then lager at 34* for a month.
Any suggestions on maltsters to use for the grains? My LHBS only carries Briess so I will probably order online to get something more Bavarian.
