    I just had this beer tonight and was amazed. What a world class pilsner. My question to you is on your hop schedule. I’ve never actually had all late additions like you did. Did you base this recipe off of something or just come up with it?

    Also, are you sure it has Saaz? I feel like I was getting mittlefruh for sure but am not confident on the Saaz

      You might be right on mittlefruh, I don’t honestly now a whole lot about this beer and for making lagers (this may be one of the only ones I’ve done!).

        How did it turn out? Was it close to a Trumer Pils?
