2 Row vs Pils Malt

Postby brewmeisterintng » Sat Aug 29, 2009 11:16 am

I want to brew a pilsner and wondered if using 2 row instead of pils malt would make that much of a difference in the final product. I will be using saaz hops and urquell lager yeast.

There's not much difference between 2-row and pils. I've used both to brew my Belgian Wit, and I haven't noticed any significant differences.

Pilsner Malt

I've never done a side by side.

Weyermann Pilsner is a delicious malt, though. I recommend trying it.

I Brewed my pilsner Friday with 8.5lbs of 2 row. We will see how she turns out. The other grains consisted of .5 lbs of Carapils. Hops wa 6oz of Saaz broken out throughout the boil. Used WLP2001 and fermenting at 51 degrees.
