Here is the recipe for the NZ pilsner that I mentioned on my brewday thread, its a lovely beer even after just 1 week in the keg. When I made it I managed to forget to add the flame out hops so I ended up dry hopping with those instead. Mash was single infusion at 65c. Lovely juicy lime and fruit notes from the Motueka in this, it is very drinkable!

Thanks Rich [thumb] I used the WLP802 yeast a couple of years ago, a couple of times infact and both beers were really good, have you used it in anything else?

First thing I have used it in but very impressed, it got it down to 1.007 and fermented out extremely quick (inside a week if I remember) at 11c! Seems to be clearing nicely too without any finings. I can send a slant if you want? [thumb]

That's very kind of you, got a lot of things going on at the min with work problems etc ( moving jobs ) i will keep it in mind though, if there's anything in the bank you fancy just shout as a few new slants have been added.

I made a Czech Pilsner a few years ago when i first started  using this yeast and it was one of the best Pilsners i have ever had, sadly i didnt make any notes at the time [frown]

No problem just let me know if you need it, I think I will probably use it on a more traditional Czech pilsner next as I haven't ever brewed a straight up lager recipe

I brewed mine with Saaz some people will say BORING but it was really fantastic.

Got a bag of saaz ready to go in it, might pair it up with some hallertau or tettnang maybe but will stay pretty traditional I reckon

I have brewed quite a few Pilsners / Lagers using all three hops and combos, i do like Hallertau  but i have to say Saaz is a favourite of mine.

When I brewed a stella-style clone with saaz it came out of the fermenter amazing; like a flavourful creamy stella. After a while in the bottle it aged into some orange concoction - I really need to get a keg.

Wakatu (NZ Hallertau aroma) is quite nice; it has some lime notes to it and a hint of vanilla. It'd probably pair well with a kólsch yeast that has white wine esters on it. I opened an unlabeled bottle which I think I superhopped with the stuff, it smelt amazing, pungent wine gums but unfortunately it was really bitter and salty.

What's Waimea like? I had a beer made with that and mosaic and it had a lovely flavour, like lychees.

Motueka would be my first choice here, your recipe looks great Dude.

Looks good dude. The blonde I made with pilsner and motueka is really nice, like they're made for each other. Just really drinkable. I'm sure it's even better with proper lager yeast to give it a nice crispness.
