A Czech style premium Pilsner with a Steam beer twist. A great beer for people that want a Lager style but ferment at ale temperatures.
Saaz hops provide a mellow bitterness and classic style taste. There is also a slight biscuit sweetness coming from the small Vienna malt addition. This beer clocks in at 6% ABV but you’d never know it, dangerous!
Brew is tested on the Grainfather with a brew house efficiency of 75%. Mash with 18.5 litres of water and sparge with 15 litres to get a pre boil volume of 29 litres.
Beer will take a little longer to clear than standard ale so bottle conditioning for four weeks minimum if using bottles and chill for at least a week before serving.
