Light Lager

Posted by Unknown | 6:04 AM | | 0 comments »


1 Coopers Lager kit (3.75lbs) or any lager or pilsner kit
2 lbs light dry malt
2 Fresh packets of ale yeast
1 packet of pilsner enzyme (amylase enzyme)


Wort boiled for 15 minutes. This preserves the light color of the wort.
Fermentation will also take longer, about 3 to 4 weeks at 68F, because the enzymes will take awhile to convert and unfermentable sugar(body) to sugars the yeast can convert to alcohol.
