WLP4035 Hessian Pils BB: 07/10/2022

Hessian Pils is a single strain of Saccharomyces pastorianus that hails from the Hess region of Germany. It exhibits everything you want in a great Pilsner yeast: it's a clean fermenter with low ester formation, exhibits a short lag time, ferments wort quickly and attenuates well even at the low end of the temperature range.

But it will reward you in massively when you get it brewed and fermented correctly.

Brewed using classic malts for this style and using new LuopMax Saaz pellets. By using LuopMax you get a higher alpha which is consistent from batch to batch.

Yeast is not included so you can select your preference and volume required or if you wish to make a starter rather than buying multiple packs. Our yeast of choice would be two packs of WLP4035 Hessian Pils which is a really tasty strain in this recipe.

For brewers of experience why not try a step mashing profile or even decoction mashing for extra depth of flavour and colour, this recipe will work well with those processes if you know how to carry them out and are able with your equipment.

Guidance – We have brewed this on a G30 with efficiency set at 80%, this resulted in 23L into the FV, and then 19L packaged after trub and hops loss. All figures and numbers are given as a guidance and you will need to work out according to your own equipment and processes.
