Batch 127, Leeser

The name is an inside joke, you'd need to watch Doc Martin to get it.

10 gallons Pilsner

OG: 1.044
FG: 1.011
IBU: 41
SRM: 12
ABV 4.3%

10 lbs pilsner malt
7 lbs munich malt
1 lb vienna malt
1 lb carapils

Mash in with 7.5 gallons at 165F for mash temp of 154F. Hold 1 hour. Sparge with 7.5 gallons 180F to collect 12.5 gallons in boil kettle.

2.5 oz Mt. Hood, 60 minutes
1.25 oz Perle, 60 minutes
1.5 oz Czech Saaz, 15 minutes
1.5 oz Czech Saaz, 5 minutes

Wyeast 2124, Bohemian lager yeast, 2 packages.

It appears I boiled a little too hard, I ended up with 9 gallons of 1.054 wort in the fermenters. Topped off with 1 gallon cold water, which puts actual OG at 1.049.

Pitched at 50F, hold at 50F for 12 days.
Raise to 65F for 24 hours.
Lager at 34F for 40 days.


Update, 12/29: Racked to new kegs without moving the lager kegs, so got very clear beer. Primed each keg with 1.75 oz table sugar.
