In this episode, we go over the 3 versions of one of our favorite styles: The Pilsner. The 2015 BJCP guidelines have reorganized the previous descriptions, but there are generally 3 variations including German, Czech, and American. Yet, the core of each is that easy to drink, crisp, refreshing light lager character, backed up with a nice hoppiness. We try a few and discuss the differences and considerations for brewing them.

Plus, we have Jeremy from the shop in studio with his pilsner--which is award winning and well known in our circles--to help discuss how to get the best version made at home using some of our favorite yeast and malts. Plus, we run down plenty of rabbit holes just for the fun of it! Like usual. Just remember that temp control is a big one with this style, as there isn't much to hide behind!
