I wanted to use up some hops I have purchased. I had two different Cascade purchases, each with a different alpha acid. I also have far too many Sorachi Ace hops and I needed to use them. The beer was a nice golden color going into the fermenter. I have high hopes for this one.

The estimated OG was 1.049. Actual OG was 1.048. I think I'll take that. The ice chest really made a difference! Especially once I figured out I was getting 60% efficiency. But I'm happy with 60% if I can hit my numbers. It's only like an extra pound of malt in a recipe of this size.

This looks like it must have been good. I brewed a Golden Ale this spring that was pretty much the same recipe as my Pilsener with a different yeast.

I also want to try that Pacific strain. I think that is supposed to be Rogue's yeast.
