Batch 141, Leeser

Almost the same last time, a slight variation in the grain bill, I didn't have any carapils, so I just used some extra vienna.

10 gallons Bohemian Pilsner

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

10 lbs pilsner malt
7 lbs munich malt
2 lb vienna malt


Mash in with 7.5 gallons at 165F for mash temp of 150F. Hold 1 hour. Sparge with 7.5 gallons 180F to collect 12.5 gallons in boil kettle. At least, that was the plan. The initial 7.5 gallons got me 3 gallons in the boil kettle, so I sparged with 10 gallons to end up with 13 in the kettle.

1.5 oz Magnum, 60 minutes
1.5 oz US Saaz, 15 minutes
1.5 oz US Saaz, 5 minutes

Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils, 2 packets. I'm sure I used something different last time, but no worries.

Pitched into 2.5 gallons at 50F, hold for 24 hours. Oxygenate remaining wort, then pitch the 2.5 gallons, hold at 50F for 12 days (July 20).

Notes from last time:
Raise to 65F for 24 hours, actually until Nov 24.Lager at 34F for 40 days. Put into lager on Nov 24, should be done lagering on Jan 5.
