Luca Donovan Pilsner
Today I have returned to my home brewing roots after a hiatus of almost 3 years. I decided to start out with something simple to get back into brewing, and so I bought myself the ready made mix for a Pilsner. These things are basically boiled down ready-made worts.
The ingredients were:
- Cooper's Pilsner mix,
- with 500g extra pale malt sugar,
- and 300g dextrose.
Boiled everything up and just pitched the yeast. Since its a Pilsner, I am going to try a cold fermentation. Where I live now the basement right next to the garage door is the ideal place for cold fermentation. There is a temperature around 18 degrees C. Since its a colder fermentation I am expecting the standard 6 days until fermentation is done will be extended (maybe doubled). I am not sure so I will keep an eye on it.
Oh yes, the name is to celebrate the birth of my son. Hopefully the brew will come out good. Check the Cooper site, you can even make your very own brew labels there, I made this one on the site.
