Czech Pilsner Extract Beer Kit

The original pilsner (also known as pilsener, pilsen or pils) was first produced in Plzeň, Bohemia in 1842. It was the first clear, light-coloured beer the world had ever seen. This pale lager is crisp and refreshing with a rich, complex malt profile. Our Czech Pilsner extract beer kit is crafted from the highest quality extract and bittered with Saaz producing plenty of hop character. A great brew for experienced extract brewers who enjoy European-style pilsners and can make a proper yeast starter and control fermentation temperature.

Please note: Yeast is now sold separately. Strain options linked above.
