Spring is coming to this desolated god forsaken country. Even though a hot summer calls for a light, refreshing and fizzy brew we felt that It will not suffice in this hard climate. Therefore were spending this Sunday brewing (as god intended) a vienna lager (3A) that with its darker hues will keep our savage people in check.
This brew will comment the moving of new political-ish ideas in the Swedish home brewing community. Helpless peasants in the shadow of the Goliath. I’m being dramatic, but I feel that theres a storm coming. Hopefully it wont take down our houses but power our mills. The lines between us and them are soon to be more blurry and the community will be less homogeneous and more connected.
We will call this beer Brewmasters premium golden shower.
This is my second go at this style and what I like about it is the crisp and satisfying freshness combined with malty malty malts. Yep.
Last time I tried brewing this style I wasn’t pleased with the crispness. It was a bit dull and maybe a little bit to sweet (not because of high FG) so I will add a bit more hops this time. I’m also adding some late hop addition to spice things up since it’s intended as a early summer beer. It’s a bit out of style but here it goes:
OG: 1.049 Mash temp: 66°c 60 min/76°c 15 min Boil time: 90 min IBU: 35-ish Fermentation temp: 11°c Malts: Pilsner (weyermann) 59.6% Munich I (weyermann) 38.5% Carafa Spec.

Also I will harvest the yeast. Self explanatory picture below:
