I can't wait to try this batch...I chose this kit because of how odd/interesting all the ingredients were and I am interested to see how its all going to come together. One of the other interesting features of this kit is that it is called a Pilsner but it is made using Ale yeast that ferments around 60-65. but apparently after bottling you can cold condition the beer to bring out more of a Pilsner feel/taste or condition at room temp for a more Ale feel. Pretty cool. Not sure how I am going to play that...maybe half and half? I am more of an ale fan usually but I'm no hater of lagers either so well see.
I think this kit should take about 2 months or maybe a little bit less so look for this batch to be ready to drink around mid-late June.
Finally got around to bottling this batch, probably almost a month later than I had originally planned. Got busy with some bachelor parties and weddings and the what not and before you know it this batch has been sitting in secondary for over a month. But not to worry, I think the extra time chilling out did the batch well, it looks great in the glass, tried a bit and it was nice and smooth. And it has about 4 weeks to condition until Lakerage. Perfectly in line with corporate goals. On time, under budget and within scope. BOO YAH.
